Little boy wants to help his great-granny..

I'm guessing this is the right forum for this

I was watching the evening news tonight and couldn't resist sharing this story here. They talked about 5 year old boy, Jaevin, who's selling his drawing on Ebay to raise money for his great-grandmother. She suffers from Alzheimer's and he wants to give the money to scientists so they can help his 'great-nanny' remember him When the story was aired, the highest bid was at $50. It's now shot up to $260.

Here's a link to the auction:

I just love when kids come up with these things by themselves. Really inspiring stuff

That's sweet and all, but it could also be a pretty nifty scam.

You know there will be lots of scams after this one, whether it is a scam or not. Gotta love mediums like eBay!
