Random Act of Kid-ness: Memes to Raise Money

This week’s Random Act of Kid-ness comes to us from Poway, California, where 5 year old Ruby Knudson made a slideshow of hand-drawn memes to raise over $1,000 for her elementary school’s fundraiser. Ruby’s school does not allow kids to go door-to-door asking for donations, so Ruby and her dad came up with the meme idea. Ruby’s dad Nathan said:

“She’s learned that the computer is connected to real people and real things which can have a real impact. I’m trying to teach her that if you’re following the crowd through life you’re never going to be first to do anything.”

Ruby’s slideshow went viral on Reddit and got so many views that it crashed the fundraising site!

We love little creative thinkers! Good job, Ruby! Read more here.
