GARFIELD HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -

A Cuyahoga County boy is doing his part to help his family.

Just call it "Kool-Aid for a Cause" -- Michael Diamond of Garfield Heights set up a Kool-Aid stand in his neighborhood on Tuesday June 18. "I am raising money for my grandmother's funeral," said Michael.

The 8-year-old boy is trying to raise money to help his family pay for his grandmother's funeral.
52-year old Bobbie Diamond passed away on Father's Day after a long battle with cancer.

All the money collected from sales will be used to help offset funeral costs which are $5,000, and Michael said he's gotten great feedback from neighbors for his efforts.

To pass the long hours Michael says he sometimes daydreams about what he would say to his grandmother if he had the chance. "I would tell her I love her and I hope to see her again."

This is Michael's third day and so far he's only raised $173, but says he will be back out Friday in the same spot. His large drinks are selling for a $1 and the small ones for .50.

If you would like to help, head on over to Rockwood Road in Garfield Heights and purchase a cold drink, he plans to keep the stand up through Sunday June 23.

Donations can be make via Paypal at  TeresaDiamond@yahoo.com.
