Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
One day, Rex saw a TV show that went from town to town and granted their populations three wishes.
He thought to himself, "we need something like that here in Las Vegas."
Using scrap wood, he started crafting small toy cars to donate to local children.
He originally recruited a few of his friends to help out with his mission, but that number has since grown to 50 volunteers.
Local companies have begun donating their scrap wood to the cause.
His goal is to make 500 toys a year; at the time of the interview, he'd given away 65,000 toys.
He says that the key to his company is to let every child know that there is someone out there who cares about their happiness.
Says "if it were all to end tomorrow," that'd be okay, because he knows he's done his part to give back.
