Boy representing nonprofit says they will donate $1 million to veterans if Trump can go vegan for a month
A nine-year-old boy has announced his decision to make a deal with Donald Trump to go vegan for the entire month of January. In return, Evan, whose full name has not been made public due to his age, will donate $1 million dollars to veterans.
The funds, of course, won't come directly from Evan's own pocket, but from a nonprofit he is representing called Million Dollar Vegan, which seeks to fight "climate change with diet change".
Check out the moment nine-year-old Evan made an offer Trump (hopefully) won't refuse:
The outspoken fourth-grader from Melbourne, Florida, made the offer to the president on Sunday morning in the form of a string of ads on billboards, television spots, and publications.
“He’s the president of our country, and pretty much everyone wants a healthy president,” the young vegan and animal-rights activist, told The New York Post.
"I think that Trump really cares about our veterans [because] they’re the ones who fought and continue to fight for our country,” he said.
The precocious grade-schooler says he chose Trump since he has the power to inspire others. “If people saw him do this, then everyone would hear about it and say, ‘If President Trump did it, maybe I can do it?’" Evan said.
The nonprofit says they’ll be ready to cash out within just an hour if the president agrees on Twitter.
“The donations for this cause are now in escrow,” a press release states.
Evan’s ad for the campaign shows him crossing his arms next to a letter he wrote to the president. “Now, I know what you’re thinking,” the letter reads. “Why would I do that? Well, we want to Make America Healthy Again, and a plant-based diet can prevent, treat and even reverse many serious diseases …”
Sadly, if President Trump refuses the deal, the offer of a $1 million donation to veterans will be done away with.
Earlier this year, Million Dollar Vegan also challenged Pope Francis to try a plant-based diet for Lent.
