Ariel is a 14year old girl whose family was directly affected by Hurricane Sandy. Her family had to flee from the area as water rushed into their basement, their street and their whole community. Upon their return Ariel was touched by the fact her young brothers friend had lost his prized possessions. So Ariel set about sourcing a new piece to ensure that through this tragedy a little boy could find some hope. “Survivor Silver Lining” was a page set up on Facebook and is now managing donations and distribution of some pretty small items, along with some pretty big items. From lego, to colouring books to Play Stations and X-Box’s, Ariel has become somewhat of a community celebrity.
And all this because she saw a need and set out to do something about it!
Compassion isn’t about self, it’s about others! It’s about showing compassion, being compassionate and living compassionately! If a 14 year old school girl can make such a huge difference imagine what you could do?
