While most of us spend the time leading up to Halloween preoccupied with costume decisions and purchases, one San Francisco teen has over the past 11 years spent his Octobers in a different manner — selling pumpkins for charity. Wyeth Coulter began selling pumpkins, will all proceeds going to local organizations, at age eight and has stuck with it ever since.
His 11-year total has now surpassed $200,000 in funds raised.
"Looking back, I never thought this would be an eleven year thing, but I fell in love with it," Coulter, making every other teenager everywhere look bad, told NBC Bay Area.
It all started when the young Coulter, obsessed with Halloween, asked his parents if he could grow a pumpkin patch on the family's Sonoma County property. He would then sell the pumpkins to neighbors and friends out of his family's San Francisco driveway, promising to donate all proceeds to charity.
This is the final year for the young man's pumpkin charity, however, as NBC Bay Area notes that the teen is moving on.
"Gotta go to college," explained Coulter.
