This is a pretty amazing story. As many of you know, I am obsessed with the efforts of the organization, charity:water. This is an inspiring story of a 9-year-old girl who started a charity:water campaign for her birthday. She gave up her birthday and decided that instead of gifts this year, she wanted people to donate to her campaign. Unfortunately, Rachel was unable to see her campaign complete its goal; she died from a spinal chord injury after being in a car accident a few days ago. But, her story has caught the attention of thousands and people all over the world are donating to her campaign which grows by the second. It is unfortunate and sad that a true act of kindness has ended in tragedy, but Rachel’s story and compassion to help others is truly an inspiration.
