A 5th grader is setting a goal of getting 100,000 meals to those who need it Thanksgiving.
There’s no arguing that the coronavirus pandemic has left the world reeling, but it’s also taught us some invaluable lessons about the nature of perseverance, the courage of conviction, and the gift of compassion.
Now, more than ever, people young and old are being inspired to make a positive difference in their communities. And few are more dedicated to giving back than North Texas 5th-grader Orion Jean.
This small but mighty public champion is on a mission. His goal: donating 100,000 meals to those in need by Thanksgiving.
“I’m asking everyone to join me in a race to kindness,” Jean told CNN. “This has been a rough year for everybody, and now it’s more important than ever to show support and love to anyone who needs it.”
Right now, people living everywhere from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Dallas, Texas can go to a drop-off point and donate a packed meal containing a bottle of water, a piece of fruit, a tuna pouch or applesauce cup, a granola bar, and—of course—a positive message.
