There's a 12-year-old in Rockford whose head isn't buried into an electronic device and because of his hard work, a group made a big donation to help him out.

The group Fatherhood Encouragement Project (FEP) learned of a 12-year-old that has been shoveling driveways and sidewalks this winter. The youngin' has been doing the old school way, with a shovel. The boy, known as K.J., runs his own landscaping company, says FEP decided to help K.J. out by going North Park Rental to buy a snowblower to surprise him with. Now, K.J. is able to make even more money... which he is saving for his college education.

If that's motivating I don't know what is.
