Car companies step up for a young boy who loves cars

The young kid found a Ford badge on the road and decided he would like one from every car. So he and his mom penned a letter to each manufacture both present and past to ask for a car badge. Most stepped up to the plate in big form.

A good PR message for the car companies and one very happy kid.

Patch's mom, Lindsay, helped him put together a simple pitch to send out, explaining himself and his mission: He loves watching cars go past his house, and one of them shed a badge that he found. Which was awesome, so if you have any more logos or decals kicking around, he would love to have one.

They included a coin from his piggy bank and, when they could, a photo of him standing in front of one of that company's cars. He signed each letter. They sent them out, to more than 50 companies-even to ones that don't exist anymore, like Saturn. Then they waited. Soon, the responses started rolling in.

Uplifting to see large corporations reaching out to a young child. Very cool!

Bentley sent a hubcap center. I wonder what Bugatti sent him. Nothing on that car is cheap.
