Eleven-year-old Larissa Manrique of Mt. Airy, Maryland is making her mark in the philanthropy world, and inspiring others to do the same, by playing her violin downtown to raise money for Project HOPE’s disaster relief efforts in the Philippines.
Ten-year-old Jennifer and nine-year-old Kimberly decided they wanted to help survivors and came up with the idea of selling Rainbow Loom Bracelets, a popular fashion accessory and trend among school kids.
The donation came through the mail. A $15,000 check in an envelope. No letter of explanation. No fanfare.
But the organization and address on the check caught the attention of Project HOPE staff. The donation was from the Ohio Reformatory for Women (ORW) and it was purposed for HOPE’s relief efforts in Haiti.
In 2005, after the Indian Ocean Tsunami, then 11-year-old Jesse Wisel felt compelled to raise money to help those impacted by the unthinkable natural disaster. Jesse and his friend, Jake Richards, made bracelets and sold them, raising nearly $2,000 to donate to Project HOPE’s Tsunami relief efforts.
