Found on Google search; The "Old Newsboys," founded in 1885, was a group of former street hawkers who had gone on to success in business, professions, and politics.
The Burt Thomas cartoon that inspired Brady.
What better channel for their efforts and generosity, Brady reasoned, than to band together once a year prior to Christmas holidays and sell papers on their old corners again and donate their proceeds to make Christmas brighter for poor kids?
The rest, of course, is history. Brady--the tax man with a big heart--raise a few bucks that day and bought a few gifts, which were delivered Christmas morning, 1914.
Since then the Old Newsboys Goodfellow Fund of Detroit has raised and spent millions of dollars on hundreds of thousand of Detroit-area kids, not only on Christmas packages but on shoes, dental work, and campership programs throughout the year.
Today some 250 Old Newsboys--and Newswomen, too--including several direct descendants of old Gentleman Jim, are on the streets hawking papers in the time-honored tradition, so that the organization's 83-year-old promise of "No Kiddie Without a Christmas" is upheld.
