Unsung Heroes #220

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.

Genevieve Czarnecki and Leanna Mitev.

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!

Bracelets for sale.
