Abby Fink thought she was sending a text to a church friend, Alex Jakeman, about bringing him dinner. But she accidentally sent it to the wrong number and it ended up leading to an act of kindness. Her text reached a man named Bill, but when he learned that she was trying to send it to a family who’s four-year-old son, Noah, was fighting for his life in the ICU at Phoenix Children’s Hospital, he wanted to help.

Bill asked Fink how he could get involved and started raising money on Facebook and asking his network for cards, blood donations and money to help the family with medical expenses for Noah, who was in respiratory failure. Bill wanted people to send the boy cards so when he woke up he would “see himself surrounded in love from the community.”

Bill said he isn't a religious person, but believes that "all we have is each other, so it's our job to look out for each other." The single dad says, “My biggest reward for this is having an opportunity to teach my son the lesson of charity.”
