Many of us are doing good deeds today by supporting others in need, whether they are people or animals.
The following story is about one such person, specifically a young boy who should serve as a role model for everyone.
Campbell Remess is a student with an unusual hobby. He makes things not to sell but to give away for free to a local hospital where seriously ill young cancer patients are treated.
Initially, Remess named his initiative “Campbell’s 365 Project.” However, since then, the young boy has already created more than eight hundred stuffed animals!
So, he might need to change the name of his hobby. The idea came to him three years ago.
Remess was at the hospital one day with his parents. There, he met suffering children for whom he felt great compassion.
The boy asked his mom and dad to buy toys for these kids, but his parents had to decline because they couldn’t afford it.
That’s when the young boy decided to fulfill his wish himself.
Remess set a goal for himself: to make 365 stuffed animals by hand and distribute them as Christmas gifts to patients at the regional hospital.
The first product he made was far from perfect. Gradually, the young boy improved his skills.
Such a noble gesture from this young boy did not go unnoticed by anyone: not the medical staff at the hospital, not the families of the children, and certainly not the children themselves, who were delighted with the gifts they received. This boy should become a role model for us, the adults.
After all, like this boy, we can at least bring a little joy into someone’s life through our kind actions.
