11-yr-old shares birthday with 100s

A Canadian boy celebrated his birthday this weekend by serving chicken curry and rice pilaf to hundreds of people at Our Place Society in downtown Victoria, B.C.

..I asked my mom if one day we could go to the homeless shelter, and my mom told my grandma about that and she said that maybe doing it on my birthday was [an] awesome [time] to do it."

Sohi was also inspired by the memory of his older sister, Subha, who died last year at age 20.

"My sister was diagnosed with bone cancer and this was something that she always wanted to do," he said. "A couple of summers ago she asked to do this, but we never got the time because she ended up getting sick. And my mum always said we'll do it when she's better, but since she never did, we decided to do it now."
...

The family has decided to make this meal an annual tradition, but they're changing the date next year.


Next year it will be on September 5th, his sister's birthday.
