Eating Bugs to Raise Money for Operation Santa Claus

beetleA local man is raising money for Operation Santa Claus – and he promises to eat bugs if his goal is reached.

Delhi resident and Runde’s Sales Manager Aaron Young says he wanted to do something to help children during the holidays. And his inspiration came from a very special little boy.

Young is asking the public to drop off donations of toys, clothing, non-perishable food and cash for Operation Santa Claus at Runde’s in Manchester. If the box is filled with donations and $1,000 is raised, he’ll feast on a plate of bugs.

Over $800 has been raised since he announced the challenge last week. Along with donating at Runde’s, Young has also set up a Go Fund Me page – you can find that link here:

Young plans to broadcast his meal on December 14th – we’ll be sure to post that video on our KMCH Facebook page.
