This 5 Year Old is Making Bracelets to Feed Kids

Aly made adorable beach-themed bracelets by hand to raise money for Feed My Starving Children.

Her Vacation Bible School in California set a goal to raise $5,000 for an FMSC packing event at the church. Aly loves making videos and crafts and came up with the idea all on her own.

She sold 47 bracelets and raised $235 to feed kids! People from as far away as the United Kingdom were ordering these very special bracelets.

“We actually had to cut it off because the store ran out of the beads, and they are a bit time consuming for a five-year-old to make as we learned!” dad Justin said.

Aly is still finishing the bracelets that were ordered.

She also decided to empty her piggy bank on the floor, Justin said. “She told us, ‘I think the kids who are hungry deserve to have more money than I have.'”

She then divided the money in two — half to donate and half to keep.

But she quickly changed her mind and reached into her half and grabbed a big handful of coins and put it in the other half to donate.

“She’s only five, but she’s always been very compassionate and mature in her wanting to help others,” Justin said.

Thank you, Aly! We are inspired by your heart for other kids!
