People think I’m just a kid, but I’m more than that – I’m a hero too! I found out that there are kids just like you and me that don’t even have enough to eat every day. So I decided: instead of some of the presents I usually get at my birthday party, my friends would donate money, in my name, to a local food pantry – that’s like a free grocery store for people who don’t have enough money right now. I have so many toys I don’t even use, that I had way more fun from having a party I knew would help people. This cool website full of games and stories will let me find out about other ways for my friends and me to be heroes at my next party. Try it!
