This 7-Year-Old Used His Own Money To Make COVID-19 Care Packages For Seniors

A young king by the name of Cavanaugh Bell is doing his part to help those in need during this COVID-19 pandemic. The 7-year-old Maryland resident decided to use $600 that he saved up over a few birthdays and Christmases to purchase care packages for senior citizens.

With the money he saved up, Cavanaugh was able to hand out 65 packages and 31 hot meals from Buca Di Beppo. The packages included food and a bottle of bleach for cleaning. He also helped to feed more than 90 students who were affected by school and restaurant closures in the area.

Bell made a video to thank his supporters and those who chipped in additional funds for his mission.

This young man is no stranger to inspiring and helping others. At only 5-years-old, he started an anti-bullying non-profit called Cool and Dope. After being a victim of severe bullying himself, his mom encouraged him to turn his pain into positivity by lifting up others in similar situations. Way to go, mom!

In just 7 years of life, Bell has given a youth TEDx talk and gotten his city to proclaim February 21 as Bullying Awareness Day. There is certainly no limit to what this young man can do.
