A 10-year-old in Texas is on a mission to spread kindness.
Orion says, “A couple of months ago, my parents entered me into a national kindness speech contest. I was paired with a coach and he would help me improve my speech and that speech was good enough and I won.”
Orion was given a cash prize to do his own kindness project.
“I decided that there are so many people around the world who could be helped by this project so I decided to start a series of events called the 'Race to Kindness'."
His first event was a race to 500 toys. On September 13, Orion donated 619 toys to Children's Health in Dallas, TX.
For his next challenge, Orion partnered with Feed The City to donate at least 100,000 meals to people in need by Thanksgiving. Each bag includes a bottle of water, fruit, a granola bar, apple sauce and a positive handwrittten note. On Halloween, Orion officially crossed the 35,000 meal mark.
Orion’s message is simple....”I know that we can change this world just by being kind!"
