Five-year-old Bond Hill meditated for 20 minutes straight on the 20 December, to raise money for toys for underprivileged kids.

His parents' share that while Bond has been mediating for years, "He typically meditates for 5 minutes per day and some days he pushes himself to do 6 or 7 minutes. But he’s never done 20 minutes." 

In the video above Bond explains his motivation, saying "I am going to raise lots of money for parents that don't have lots of money so that they can get more toys."

Dad Treis Hill says that his son has a very long Christmas wish list, but he said that he has enough toys, especially when other kids don't have any.

Bond has smashed his Go Fund Me campaign target, having collected over $28 000 (over R418 800) to date, and he hopes to raise even more.
