Does age really matter? Madi doesn’t think so. Madi, a 6-year old Florida native decided that despite her young age, she could change the world. Setting up a candy shop at her church, Madi charged customers and donated the profit from her sales to Kids Caring 4 Kids. Wow! In fact Madi raised nearly $90. That is enough money to buy 9 school uniforms for kids in Africa to attend school or enough to buy 18 pairs of shoes for children who walk miles to school. Incredible!
Madi isn’t stopping there. She has plans to have a garage sale this month to raise more money for the kids in Africa. I am so excited to see all that Madi can accomplish. The coolest part is, you can do something too. Madi is a great example, showing us that anyone can make a difference.
President Clinton’s book, Giving, highlights the work of a number of extraordinary people and organizations-some famous, some-not. Their incredible stories suggest that the act of giving takes many forms, and it emphasizes that offerings of time, skill, objects, and ideas can be just as important as contributions of money. It’s true, anyone can give. Whether you’re old, young, or middle-aged, you can do something to better the lives of others.
If Madi can help change the world, why can’t you?
