8 Year Old World Changer

Abby

My name is Abby and I'm 8 years old.

I care about helping people in need. One simple way I think someone can add kindness to the world is by giving to the homeless or needy. When you do something like this you get a tingly feeling. That, I call “the kindness feeling”.

The kindness feeling is my favorite feeling ever. I believe the world needs more kindness because when you give kindness, it spreads. I believe kindness is a necessity to the body. Without kindness, the world is just sad.

Every year, I do a pay it forward project. One year I collected and donated towels to a local animal shelter. Another year I made breakfast for the police. When I was very little I raised $1,000 for Shelterbox to help people who were victims of a tsunami.

All of this matters to me because kindness is my life.

See Abby’s kindness in action!

Dear Abby, Your story is truly touching. It is amazing to me that you are 8 years old and you have a sense of empathy and strong desire to care for others that most adults lack. Please never lose this as you grow up. Keep fostering this love and continue to teach others!
