Carly Rocks

Reader’s Digest covers an inspiring article about Carly Zalenski who set out to build in Viet Nam for children when she was twelve, and she accomplished it in two years. Here is how she did it:

She put together a PowerPoint presentation on the people and culture of Vietnam. At 12, barely able to see over the podium, she gave her first fund-raising pitch. Though her new braces made it hard to enunciate, she spoke with enthusiasm. “The kids in rural Vietnam don’t have decent schools,” she told a room of 200 Rotarians. “That’s not fair. I want to give them a place to make their lives better.”

Thanks Carly for such a kind heart.
