After Teaching Himself To Sew, This 12-Year-Old Made 800+ Toys For Sick Kids

He’s only been sewing for three or so years, but this young activist has crafted more than 800 stuffed animals for sick children.

Quite frequently, it seems, the world learns of young activists who are dedicating their time and talents to helping others. From a 9-year-old girl who builds tiny homes for the homeless to a pre-teen boy who passes out free sandwiches to those on the streets, they’re inspiring many, as they’re proving that all one needs to “do good” is a kind heart and enthusiasm.

A couple of months ago, another young boy made the news when his “Project 365 Campbell” captured international attention. After teaching himself how to sew three years ago, 12-year-old Campbell Remess began dedicating nearly all of his time to craft stuffed animals for children at a local hospital. Reportedly, the idea to create toys was inspired when he asked his parents to buy gifts for all the children at the hospital, and they said they couldn’t because it would cost too much. Rather than get upset, he decided instead that he’d make stuffed animals by himself.

When his story was initially reported on, it was relayed that to date, Campbell has made over 800 stuffed animals. At least 450 toys were created in 2016 alone. The young activist uses any donations received to purchase materials which he uses to create the stuffed animals. If you’d like to contribute to Project 365, click here.
