9-Year-Old Builds Tiny Homes For The Homeless Because "Everyone Deserves A Place To Live"


We've featured some incredible young activists on the site before, but this nine-year-old girl from Bremerton, Washington is positively impacting the lives of many in an incredibly unique and inspiring way.

When Hailey Fort was just 5 years old, she asked her mother if they could buy a homeless man a sandwich. Not a year had passed before Hailey began growing vegetables to donate to the local food bank.

And now, at age 9, Hailey, has invested her passion of helping others into a new project: building 12 mobile sleeping shelters for homeless people in her community.
