Kioso has decided to pledge the money

“Being from that country, I justwanted to try and give something back,” he explained.
“All my family are from the country
so I have such a strong connection and bond to the place. I have even taughtmyself the language.
“There are kids there who don't have
what I have and have not had the opportunities I have had. I can't help every
kid in the world but hopefully I can help a little for some of those strugglingin my home country.
“Some of the youngsters over there don't get to go to school and some don't even have enough food to eat so any little thing I can do to help is something I want to do.”
