An eight-year-old Virginia boy who is a Pokemon fanatic get a surprise from the company after he sold his Pokemon cards collection to help pay for medical care for his sick puppy. Bryson Kliemann took it upon himself to sell his Pokeman cards when he heard that the puppy, named Bruce, would need treatment, with his mother, Kimberly Woodruff, explaining, "While I'm in school I get a text message with a picture of him and a sign on the side of the road selling Pokemon cards." Woodruff posted the photo online and started a GoFundMe, which raised $5,000, far more than the $800 goal. After getting treatment, Bruce returned home. Pokeman employees based in Washington state heard about what Bryson had done, and they sent him a package of rare Pokemon cards that are hard to find in stores.
They even sent a letter of appreciation that read: “Hey Bryson, we were so inspired by your story about selling your cards for your dog’s recovery, these are some cards to help you replace the ones you had to sell.”
Bryson couldn’t believe it.
“I’m happy he’s home, and I’m proud of myself. Now my brother and sister are playing with him too, and now I’m really playing with him pretty often,” he said.
The additional money that was raised in the fundraiser will go toward medical expenses for other sick pets in Southwest Virginia.
