A 15-year-old boy has donated 15,000 crayons and 1,500 colouring books to help sick children in hospital. Carter Crockett, a first year student at Millville High School near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania said: "I’m putting my autism on the side so I can help them."  “The fact that he was feeling compassion toward other people is huge because that’s not something that autistic kids have – that’s really hard for them to do,” Carter's mother Patti Crockett told the local Fox News affiliate.
