We have learned about some incredible stories about a few local children doing some amazing mindful work and giving back to the community. Some of these kids have been inspired by our Mindful Littles community service events and have started campaigns to help the causes they learned about. We want to start featuring these awesome littles and share their stories with our community.
Our first #MindfulLittleSpotlight is about a big-hearted 1st grader, Caden Morrow. Caden attended our first Haiti event, where we put together personalized hygiene kits for children in a school in Hinche, Haiti. Caden was extremely engaged during our event with thoughtful wishes to send to the kids we were helping. Since attending our event, Caden has taken the initiative to continue helping the Haiti children he learned about that day.
His mom, Kim, says “The event had quite an impact on my 7 year old son, Caden, who, after assembling hygiene kits at your Mindful Littles event, decided to raise money for the kids in Haiti on his own. First, he wrote and photo copied a letter about his project, which he “sold” to friends and family for $1 each, raising about $43 dollars. Then, we held a bake sale over the holidays and raised another $100. Caden and his sister made signs letting people know that the proceeds were going to the Center of Hope – Haiti and took a lot of pride in selling their baked goods and collecting money. I think what you are doing through the Mindful Littles program is wonderful, and it’s obviously having an impact on children near and far… I look forward to attending another one soon!”
Caden you are truly a special person! We feel honored to share this incredible story about you. Keep up the great work!
