Kids Who Inspire

You may remember Jonathan Ross, one of the CWDkids Care Contest finalists from last year. Jonathan, along with the help of his mother, started a fundraising project and created a cookbook of celebrity recipes called H.U.G.S. (Help Us Give Support). He sold the cookbook to help raise money for his church mission trips to Peru.

Well, Jonathan contacted us again to let us know that next summer, he will be old enough to travel with his church on their 2010 mission to Peru! CWDkids will be donating tee-shirts that he can bring to the children there who so desperately need them.

When asked about his experience with HUGS and his upcoming trip, Jonathan said "It seems hard to do good, but when you think about it, its not hard at all."

Read more about his story in the Herald-Dispatch here. You can also read more about Jonathan on his web site and see how he inspired his sister to create H.U.G.S 2!!

Do you know a child who inspires others? Nominate them for our 2009 CWDkids Care Contest!

Kudos to Jonathan. I blogged about his recipe book on my site. Best of luck next year in Peru. There are so many wonderful kids doing great things for others.

Congratulations to Jonathan and his parents.
