Super Ewan to the rescue! 8-year-old starts nonprofit

 

It's a bird, it's a plane ... it's Super Ewan! He's an 8-year-boy old from Macomb County who deserves to be called a hero.

He's known as Ewan Baker Drum by day and, regardless of the weather, you can find him and his family helping others on the weekends. They spend hours distributing gifts of warmth, food and encouragement to the hungry, the homeless and the who just need a helping hand.     

When Super Ewan isn't braving freezing temperatures offering basic necessities with his cape billowing behind him, he's trying to collect more items to hand out.    

"We get it from people who donate it and we get it out of our closet if we don't need it anymore," he says. 

So how does an 8 year old decide he wants to give up precious time on the weekends to help others?  

"I was thinking of helping people and I just of thought of asking my parents if I could do it," he says. 

"He actually initially asked, when he was a teenager could he do this. My husband and I we choked back tears and said, 'You don't have to wait 'til you're a teenager. Let's do this now," says mom Angela Drum.

He and his family are behind the Motor Lodge in Chesterfield on the second Sunday of every month, and at Roosevelt Park in Detroit on the fourth Saturday of every month. 

Super Ewan's nonprofit has been going strong for over six months now. Since it is a 50-C3 all donations are tax deductible. If you want to find out more about this amazing little boy you can check out his Facebook page or visit www.superewan.org.
