Sup Travellers?! I write a lot of articles about stupid people doing stupid things. However, today I got news of an amazing person doing amazing things. There is a story surfacing the headlines of a 9 year old girl named Rachel who saved thousands of people from Ethiopia. Her name is Rachel. I know I told you her name already but I just wanted it to sink in.... Read on.


I'm not going to write everything on this story because there is a video below that states the whole thing. But basically what happened is a 9 year old girl's generosity and kindheartedness changed the lives of thousands of people in Ethiopia.

The girl pledged to donate a certain amount of money to the needy on her birthday instead of receiving gifts. This was a very generous thing for her to do. She didn't reach her goal but a year later, the little girl passed away. When the public found out about her death and what she wanted to accomplish, people from all over donated money that amounted to $1.2 million to her cause. The money changed the lives of over 60,000 people in Ethiopia. So she did accomplish her goal, but not while she was alive.

If this story doesn't make you feel all weird inside then I can conclude that your heart is withered. A story like this makes you wonder about a lot things, doesn't it? It shows that the human population has the power to save a lot of lives. But frankly, not much people actually do anything. A lot of people are selfish. It took the death of little Rachel for people to actually take action. Why couldn't that have been done before.  The people of Ethiopia were suffering way before she died. Anyway, I salute little Rachel for her actions and I know that she's in a better place. She is a hero and she did not die in vain. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

One Response so far.
