I was so moved by this little boy’s kindness, courage, optimism and general awesomeness.
Joel’s a 9 year old who has been watching the news and seeing little kids his age and younger walking many miles to find safety.
He’s decided he wants to walk from his home to London (115 miles) to raise money for the refugee children. He and his dad are going to do the walk in the next school holiday – late October. They are taking clothes and a tent, but no food, water or money, because Joel wants to find out how kind strangers can be to those who have nothing.
He’s decided to give his much-loved Lego characters and Hot Wheels cars away as perks to people who contribute to his fundraising.
What an adventure he’s embarking on – one he will never forget.
