A 10-year-old boy in Philadelphia named Evan adopted a cat named Macha from a local cat rescue shelter 3 years ago..

After seeing the shelter, he decided he wanted to help out.  So he donated a bunch of allowance he'd saved . . . $46.75 . . . and told them, quote, "I saved this money to help you help cats."            

And each of the last three years...he does the same thing..... He gave $63 in 2010 . . . $97 in 2011 . . . and $110 last year.  He also convinced his parents to match his donation.
