Brendan Haas is a 9 year old from Kingston, Massachusetts. Somewhere along the line he heard about the famous website One Red Paperclip that features the story of  a guy used a series of trades to turn one red paperclip into a house.

Brendan go the idea to do something similar but he wanted to use his trades to help out the family of a fallen U.S. soldier.  So to Facebook he went! He set his page up to try and trade one toy soldier for a trip to Disney World.

First he traded the toy soldier for a $50 Walmart gift card.  Trading that he got an overnight spa trip.  Leading to Red Sox tickets.  which got him a snowmobiling trip.  From that BAM, he got the Disney World trip.

A bunch of families of fallen solders had emailed him and choosing at random, on Memorial Day,  he chose the family of a soldier named Timothy Steele and sent them to Disney World.  An all inclusive trip including airfare, hotel, and $900 in gift certificates.

Timothy Steele was killed in Afghanistan last August at age 25.  He left behind a wife and a two-year-old daughter.  Coincidentally the family lived pretty close to Brendan, in Duxbury, Massachusetts. Watch the video below.
