Back in February, 9-year-old Brendan Haas wanted to trade for a trip to Disney World to give to a deserving family.

He started with a toy soldier. From there, the trades got bigger and bigger with the network growing nationwide.

Then Brendan met his goal: Tickets to Disney World including airfare, a stay at the Disney villas, and almost $900 in Disney gift certificates.

On Memorial Day weekend, the family of a fallen soldier was chosen out of a hat to receive Brendan's gift. Twenty-five-year-old Timothy Steele was killed last August in Afghanistan. The soldier left behind a wife and a 2-year-old daughter named Liberty Hope.

Now, the two families are connected by a single toy soldier. (more)
