Inspiring Kids: These 12-Year-Old & 7-Year-Old Are Doing Great Things For Children In Hospitals - Share Their Story!
A 12-year-old boy from Tasmania in Australia and a 7-year-old girl from Ohio in the U.S. are shining examples of how kindness can still rule the world. By their own initiative, they are doing great things for other children in hospitals. Their gesture should serve as an inspiration for the rest of the world.
Campbell Remess has been sewing teddy bears for the last three years. He started learning to work the sewing machine after telling his parents he wanted to give toys to sick kids in hospitals for Christmas.
"When told it would be too expensive, he decided he would make them," Campbell Remess' parents said, according to MDaily Mirror. His passion project eventually grew and even gave rise to a Facebook page that takes on requests for teddy bears. To date, he has already sewn and given away 800 teddy bears for children at hospitals.
Since starting this project, Campbell Remess have received money donations from other kind patrons, which he uses to buy materials. He has also been tapped by organizations that help fund cancer research. Learn more about Campbell Remess' project in the video at the end of this article.
Over in Ohio, 7-year-old Ella Tryon has been sending boxes of crayons and coloring materials for children in hospitals. She came up with the idea after being sick in July for severe allergy.
Resting at her hospital bed, Ella Tryon wanted to color but found out that there aren't any crayons at the hospital. "I told her the next time we had to come to the hospital, we would bring a few boxes with us to donate them," Ella Tryon's mom said, according to KSL.
So, the young girl has been gathering boxes of crayons since then. She plans on donating these at the Rainbow Babies and Children's Hospital in Cleveland for Christmas.
Ella Tyron also set up a Facebook campaign enjoining others to donate crayons. To date, her donation drive has already received 13,000 boxes when her original goal was only 1,000 boxes. "Ella's selfless act is an example to all of us about how unconditional giving can create such a great impact," the president of the hospital said.
