The Chocolate Seller

An Ordinary Life
S1:Ep355 mins2009

Mark Grantham often jokes, "I have five kids and I’m not even married." Mark’s sponsored children (who live in third world countries) are dependent on the money he makes selling chocolate in one of Auckland City’s busiest streets.

He has dedicated his life to raising money for those kids, selling more than 20,000 chocolate bars on the street. Remarkably, Mark is totally dependent on others. His extreme form of cerebral palsy affects almost his entire body. The only thing he can do for himself is maneuver his power wheelchair with the slightest movements of his head. But Mark proudly lives in his own home with full-time caregivers.
