Learning from the Young
Half of Feed My Starving Children volunteers are under 18. We’re constantly amazed by their passion, energy, selflessness, and generosity. They really get it.
Sephrane, age 9, and Emilie, age 5, (pictured above) packed meals at an FMSC MobilePack event with their church in Utah. Inspired, they decide to start a lemonade and Otter Pop stand to raise money for the hungry. They made $26 – enough to pay for 118 meals!
Sean (picture on left) decided to raise money for FMSC rather than receiving gifts for his 13th birthday. He raised $200 – enough to pay for over 900 meals! He’s also planning to dedicate his Eagle Project to feeding kids around the world.
Regular-volunteer Abby (picture on right) really understands impact. “I always think of my two dollars as what can they do, not what can’t they do. They CAN feed more kids.” Abby’s story (watch the video here) is a great example of doing what you can, with what you have.
What great examples of compassion. Learning from the young is humbling.
“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers…” -1 Timothy 4:12
