McIlraith says he's not typically keen on having his picture taken but he recognizes the awareness that comes with it.

He says he bases his fundraising goals on last year's performance, and last year he raised $17,000 worth.

He has raised more than $40,000 to date, and says this his next yearly goal hasn't been set yet but he's guessing between $15,000 and $20,000.

The Atticus McIlraith Baby Formula Drive for Winnipeg Harvest raises money and collects baby formula; anyone looking to donate can call Atticus' mom Sharon at (204) 391-3978 or email Atticus at oneboyforchange[at]gmail.com. He says if you're far away, don't worry, they can come and pick up your donations.
