This Unsung Hero award should have been bestowed last summer.
But I just heard about it. So here, in late December, let’s honor Leanna Mitev and Genevieve Czarnecki.
Ages 10 and 11 respectively, they had an idea: make bracelets and necklaces, then sell them to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital.
They followed through — not easy for young kids — and sent off a check for $500.
What a great combination of creativity, entrepreneurship and charity. And even though it took place in mid-summer, there’s no better story to head into the new year!
