This is heartbreaking.
NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos is one of the men who was murdered on Saturday in Brooklyn, and he sadly left behind his 13-year-old son Jaden Ramos.
Following the horrible shooting, Jaden posted a message to his Facebook, saying:
We absolutely need more people like this in the world.
Eight-year-old William Winslow has a lot more on his mind than learning multiplication tables. He’s trying to feed all of the hungry kids in his county!
This wasn’t his first food drive either! William previously raised $305 and collected 1,400 lbs of food last February!
But William wanted to make a bigger difference with BackPack Buddies, which is a hunger-relief program in North Carolina, where the little guy lives.
During his last food drive, this philanthropist raised enough combined food and ca$$$h to feed 16 kids for a whole year! He’s also worked with four different grocery stores and 50 volunteers to raise over $3,000 and 3,335 pounds of food!
He’s even so dedicated, that for his seventh birthday, William asked for donations rather than presents.
And all of William’s hard work has clearly paid off, not just because now his classmates aren't going hungry, but he’s also gotten a $500 grant from Sodexo Foundation to further his cause!
If you’re feeling as inspired as we are, then ch-ch-check out William’s video (below), and you can get involved too! Just CLICK HERE!
