Back in 2015, in response to the growing homelessness evident in the US, a 9-year-old girl named Hailey Fort took it upon herself to do something about it. Something practical. Something that would directly help someone in need, in her community.
She decided to grow food to help feed the hungry, but even more amazingly, she decided to build shelter, with her own two hands, using as much recycled materials as she could.
It is so inspiring to see someone so young taking action to address the injustices of the world. We could all take a leaf out of her book, really. To look around, see where the need is and actually do something about it.
Unfortunately, according to Hailey’s Facebook page, she is going through some health problems of her own, so please send warm wishes and prayers in her direction.
