John Dunn my Everyday Hero

'What makes a mark on your Australia?'
John Dunn is my Everyday Australian Hero, he is 12 years old.
John has made his mark as a young Australian by raising thousands of dollars; the money John raises goes to a charity which he set up himself to help the homeless people at the Exodus Foundation in Ashfield Sydney. John Dunn’s Charity is http://fundraise.swags.org.au/johndunn
I first met John Dunn through my Mum; he goes to the same school as my brother. He first started fundraising in 2008, he has raised $13,882 up until now.
Mum told me how he worked helping others, John recently travelled to Rwanda with his Mother to volunteer in the local schools, John told me how different life was in Rwanda.
John has lots of ways to raise money for charity, walkathons, swimathons and busking, he asks for money for his birthday instead of keeping it for himself he gives it to charity!
