Harry Moseley was 11 years old when I met him online

I was having a bad night so I was awake and online

He started chatting

I don't think I have ever been so impressed by a child

He had a brain tumour and he knew he was dying but he wanted to raise not just money but awareness of Brain tumours in children

He quite simply reduced me to a teary wreck

Before he died he met so many celebrities
Before he died he raised £500.000
He made bracelets and sold them outside of Asda and had celebrities making bracelets

Since he died his mother and family and celebrities have raised another £500.000
So £1 million and counting

Online we went through every moment of his operation coma and death with his mum
I saw prayer groups so active for this wee boy

Some felt he deserved to be honoured by his hometown
They felt he deserved a star on broad street

Two people on the face book page have worked so hard to get this honour for him they should be proud of their effort!/groups/astarforharry/375595655837537/?notif_t=group_activity

So far Broad street have refused
At first they tried to say other folk got more votes
The organizers proved them wrong
Now they say they do not award posthumously
So the petition above

I am simply asking for signatures on the petition and if any person has any contact that might help then please use it

I don't know whether this is allowed either but I have signed the petition anyway - what an inspiring young man and family

Thank you he was an inspiration

I must assume this is the right forum for this topic

I think Harry, and his dedication to helping those who would come after him, is amazing, but I think your 'tag' on the charity forum page could give a better clue to what you're writing about.
It merits many more readers. Good luck with the petition. Maybe the local Asda can help? Or even put a seat in their carpark to commemorate such a brave and inspiring young lad. His parents (and grandparents) must be so proud of him, despite of their grief.
