Boy Raises Funds for Fire Equipment for Livingston County (MI)

Eleven-year-old Lucas Vetter has raised $112,000 to purchase life-saving CPR machines for local fire departments, reports Livingston Daily.

His planning started two years ago after creating a business plan with marker and construction paper. Lucas said his whole family has helped raise money by planning fundraisers and asking for donations from local businesses and residents.

LUCAS, the Lund University Cardiac Assist System, helps prevent strain on first responders and keep their hands free to help more people. Each device costs roughly $16,000, which is a barrier for smaller fire departments.
