During the COVID-19 pandemic, everyone is stepping up to do their part to help others – even children.

When one little boy heard the elderly and vulnerable in his community didn’t have proper supplies or food to get them through the pandemic – he wanted to do his part to help.

Thinking about what to do – he decided to donate his entire life-savings to help provide food and cleaning supplies to people in his community!

This sweet 7-year old boy only had $600 to his name, but he wasn’t going to let that stop him from doing his part.

Knowing he needed more than $600 to meet the needs around him, he started a GoFundMe page which has currently raised over $11,000.

He named his GoFundMe Page “Love >COVID-19” and went on to share his heart behind doing his part to help others:

“During this coronavirus pandemic, it is scary and it feels like the world is coming to an end, but I know with love we can get through this together.

So, with all of my savings from three birthdays and two Christmases, I made 68 care packs for senior citizens  so they could have what they needed to feel safe. And, then I used some money that was left to buy 31 hot meals for the elderly. And, then I wanted to give back even more, so I went to social media and asked for donations.

And, I got enough money to buy food for 90 students!!!

But, I want to help as many people in my community get through this scary time. That’s why I’m launching the “LOVE is greater than COVID-19” Community Pantry. If you are in need or if you know someone in need, REQUEST A CARE PACK: bit.ly/pantryrequest.”

Incredible!

With the resources raised, 7-year old Cavanaugh is now helping fellow students who are underprivileged and not able to afford a hot meal.

He’s also done wonders to help the elderly in his community.

What a bright and shining light he is for those who are hurting.

Instead of hiding behind a blanket of fear – or even believing the lie that he is too young to make a difference – this young man did his part to make the world a better place for those around him.

Love truly is greater than COVID-19.

This little 7-year old boy is an example for all of us.

We might not be able to change the world, but we can start by helping those directly in our community.

Even though he only had $600 – he didn’t hesitate to give his very last penny to help those who were vulnerable.

And this bright young entrepreneur is taking his mission even further, and now seeks to raise money to help other kids create kid-based care package distribution sites in other cities around the country.

Cheers to you, Cavanaugh Bell!

We salute your bravery and resourcefulness.
