Young 7-year-old Isiah of Gainesville, Virginia heard about the Flint, Michigan water crisis on the news and immediately wanted to help. He and his mom contacted an elementary school in Flint, and offered to send bottled water. When they told him hand sanitizer might be more helpful, he started his mission by kicking off a Go Fund Me fundraising campaign online.

Little did he know that instead of the $500 he was hoping to raise, he’d raise over $14,000 and even get a tweet from President Obama! Now, he’s visiting our show and Rach has even more surprises for him.

She reveals that GOJO, the company behind Purell, is donating $10,000 to his latest cause, the Homeless Children’s Playtime Project! GOJO didn’t stop there though, and also donated $5,000 worth of hand sanitizing wipes! Watch above to meet Isaiah, and watch below to see his shock when he learns of GOJO’s donation!
