Stories of Kindness from Around the World

My Granddaughter's Kindness

--by dotmatrix, posted Jun 3, 2023
I'm so proud of my granddaughter. She turns ten this week and I just learned yesterday from my daughter that she and three of her classmates are raising money for a non-prof by participating in a kid triathlon.

Here's the blurb.

"The fantastic four (Evie, Bea, Oskar and Joshua) from Victoria Park Primary School year 5 Hawthorn class, are doing their first triathlon and raising funds for the charity Restless Development (about this charity below). They will each be swimming 50 metres, cycling 1k, and running 750m. Please donate to support the 'Hawthorn Hotshots'. Thank you!

"Restless Development is a global non-profit agency that supports the collective power of young people to create a more sustainable world. We listen, train and connect young people to lead on meaningful change in their communities. We work out of 7 hubs located in Africa and Asia but we have a global impact with a presence in over 56 countries. We prioritise youth leadership by supporting young people to find solutions to the problems they face. Whether it be supporting young people to set up their own business or helping to end child marriage, we work with young people to change their lives and the lives of people in their communities.Restless Development puts young people at the forefront of what we do and this is why these triathlons are especially important to us. Working with such an energetic and ambitious group of young fundraisers and triathletes, who are already making a positive difference around the world at such an early stage in their lives is incredibly inspiring."
