This Teacher Is Selling His Vintage Toy Collection, The Reason Why Is Pure Awesome.
Nat Ellis has been collecting toys from fast food restaurants for 25 years. The business and marketing teacher was hoping to sell his 1,139 toys when he retired. Nonetheless, when students and staff at Klamath Union High School began raising money for four-year-old Logan Roninger, Ellis knew how he could help.
Logan was born with spinal muscular atrophy, a condition affecting his muscle strength. The little boy has a power wheelchair but needs to upgrade to one that will allow him more physical freedom to play. The $17,000 Tankchair is not covered by insurance. The high school has raised $11,000 so far.
By putting his collectibles on sale, the teacher hopes to help the family reach their goal.
Logan Roninger is a four-year-old boy who was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy.
Logan has been using a wheelchair since he was two but now requires a new model that will give him more mobility and freedom.
Nat Ellis has been collecting the toys since a student left one on his desk 25 years ago. The collection kept growing to 1,139.
Ellis estimates that some of the collectibles can sell for $30 to $60 each.
“Life’s not about us. It’s about other people. So the best thing you can do is help as many people as possible,” says Ellis.
The high school teacher has never met Logan but wanted to help him.
