Angela Verzwyvelt has a hard time deciding what to do with her challenge money. "[There are] endless possibilities of what you could do with this, because there's so many people in need," she says.

Eventually, Angela learns about a family in her community with a 5-year-old autistic child named Austin. Austin's expensive treatments aren't covered by insurance, so his parents try to make extra money doing yard work and running an eBay store. Despite their efforts, they're still struggling with debt, and Angela knows her donation will help the family.

When Angela meets Austin's family, they're overwhelmed and grateful. With her help, they'll be able to continue the therapies that allow Austin to be mainstreamed into a regular school. Angela is happy to be able to help make his life better. "I know the parents will use the money toward making a difference in [Austin's] life," she says.
