I nearly started crying when I discovered Hailey Fort. She is an amazing 9 year old girl with a heart of gold!
With the help of her family, Hailey builds portable shelters and grows food for the homeless in her town. Her mom, Miranda Fort, says, “This was all Hailey’s idea.”
Four years ago Hailey started helping the homeless when she saw a homeless man on the side of the street. She asked her mom if there was anything she could do to help him. They bought him lunch and ever since then Hailey has taken it upon herself to start a garden to donate food and build micro houses for the homeless in Bremerton, Washington.
I love Hailey’s comment on growing food for the homeless, “Empty stomachs hurt. They break concentration and make the future seem impossible. Giving food is essential to creating health.”
