Eleven-year-old, Alex Lawson, came up with an idea that inspires children and adults around the world. Although this event occurred a couple of years back, his kind heart and contribution truly moved us. When the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti happened, young Alex knew he wanted to help, especially since he read that over 50% of the population were kids. He started to collect as many backpacks he could, old, new, or used, and they were taken to St. Lucie International Airport in Fort Pierce where supplies and aid workers were being flown to Haiti to help.
Reading about this story really inspires youth and adults to be hands on in giving back to our community. What a great read, click here for the full article! Let us know if your child or someone you know would like to be featured in our next Random Act of Kid-ness blog.
