It’s hard to preach positivity when you think about the state of our economy or the rising cost of gas (don’t even get me started)! Yet here at LHJ, we like to spend our time commending people who make a positive impact on the world. I am inspired by fifteen year-old Hannah Taylor from Canada. At age 8, she started the Ladybug Foundation to help the homeless and “connect even more hearts in caring for each other.” Today, Hannah’s Ladybug Foundation supports over 50 shelters, missions, soup kitchens and food banks across Canada. The most remarkable aspect of Hannah is her humble nature. As she told me, she hopes “to be remembered as an ordinary human being who believes in the power of caring.”
To learn more about this amazing girl—and maybe inspire your own kids to do good—grab your teenage daughters and sons and check out the documentary Hannah’s Story, which airs this Sunday, November 14th at 10:00 p.m. EST on the Documentary Channel. [For more information or to request DOC in your area, you can visit documentarychannel.com]. It is impossible not to be inspired by Hannah. She’s proof of how much impact one little girl can make when she has a big heart.
