I had the pleasure of meeting Tyson Copeland today during a fundraising event. This fundraiser was created by Tyson to raise money so other children with serious illnesses can have a chance to make their dreams come true and become real life heroes. Tyson and his family asked Charles, from the Colten Cowell Foundation how he could help raise money, Charles helped come up with the mason jar idea. He challanged Tyson to fill three mason jars with coins. Tyson took it further and filled over 1,000 jars. All the proceeds go towards building a 35,000 square foot "Crime Fighting Cave" modeled after the original Batman's Bat Cave.
As of this afternoon, Tyson handed over the jars full of coins worth $18,707.79 to the Colten Cowell Foundation.

And later that afternoon, we celebrated Tyson's 11th birthday at the old crime fighting cave.
