HEPBURN TOWNSHIP -- A little boy from Lycoming County who melted many hearts last month with his Christmas wish is looking to help others this holiday season.

8-year-old Giovanni Hamilton suffers from a rare genetic disorder that confines him to a wheelchair.

Instead of asking for toys, the second grader asked for a wheelchair accessible van for Christmas.

Now, Giovanni is asking people on Facebook to donate $5 to "Andrew's Special Kids," a foundation in South Williamsport that helps children with disabilities.

The foundation has pledged $5,000 to help Giovanni get his new van.
