Today's hero spotlight is an awesome 11 year old. Since many of us are now in the middle of back to school shopping, I thought that this story might inspire some of you.
A few years ago, this great kid watched the news about the earthquake in Haiti. He felt so much empathy for the children there, that he decided to do something for them. (Hint: it involves old backpacks). Read this story to see what he did!

-How did a good imagination help Alex when he learned about the earthquake?
-Who did Alex think should help? Why?
-Helping is good, but practical help is even better. How did Alex try to be practical?
-What do you think getting a backpack would feel like if you were a child in Haiti?
-How did Alex grow and learn from this? How did he benefit from helping others?
-Did you see how people of different faiths were able to work together?
-What would have happened if Alex had tried to do this by himself?
-Because he was a leader, Alex was able to get others to help and eventually 400 children in Haiti were given backpacks. Do you see something that you can be a leader in?

Hi, I'm Jen! I adore chocolate, I'd rather read than clean my house, and I haven't seen my abs in I-don't-know-how-long. But I love my husband and kids to death and try to Raise The Good within myself and my family by making wise and uplifting media choices and having a deliberate family culture. You are probably doing the same thing. Let's share what works with each other!
