Julian Berchtold, 8, and Shane Berchtold, 11, were moved by Friday night's telethon for Hope for Haiti NOW, depicting the devastating stories and images coming out of the country after a major earthquake left much of it in rubble. They were so inspired that they decided to organize a fundraiser of their own the next day. Julian and Shane enlisted the help of friends Jack Stoudemire, 11, and Jake Davis, 10, and set up a booth in Del Mar, selling their own books and toys. They also sold apples and oranges. Eventually, they raised $50, all of which they donated to the relief effort in Haiti. 'Most people just stopped by to donate money and did not even want anything,' Julian said.
