Little boy donates birthday money to Mitchell International Airport

MILWAUKEE-Julian Her zing-Burkard  asked friends and family to donate cash instead of giving him presents for his 10th birthday.


On Wednesday he handed over $297 to Mitchell International Airport.


\"I love the airport, I love airplanes,\" Julian told CBS 58 News. \"I love Milwaukee and I had this thought how about for my birthday I donate all the money for the airport expansion.\"


Last birthday, Julian's gift was a meeting with Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett to discuss the importance of expanding service at Mitchell.


\"Because I got so much stuff that I don't need any more. So, I thought well how about the airport gets something.\"
