Cavanaugh Bell was born to be a hero and a role model. At 7 years old, he felt bad about being targeted by bullies. So what did he do? According to the Washington Post:
“After I was bullied and I felt a darkness inside of me, I knew I didn’t want other kids to feel the same way I felt,” he wrote on his GoFundMe page. “So, I asked my mom if she could help me spread love and positivity. And, the more I gave back to my community, the more I wanted to keep doing it.”
Thanks to Cavanaugh, people in Gaithersburg, MD — and more than 1,500 miles away, in South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation — have access to groceries and toiletries. Sometimes, against all the odds, bullies succeed in bringing out the best in kids.
