9-year-old builds shelters for the homeless and feeds them too

9-year-old builds shelters for the homeless and feeds them too

Though Hailey Fort is only 9 years old, she has already done more to help the homeless and needy than many of us have.

This young girl spends her free time building mobile shelters for the homeless, and even grows food and provides toiletries for them, too.

When Fort was 5 years old, she asked her mother, Miranda, about helping a homeless man she saw in Bremerton, Washington, where she lives. Her mother said yes, and now they work together to help the needy.

The man she helped, Edward, has become her friend. She builds the shelters, “so then you don’t get rained on and you feel safe and stay dry.” “It just doesn’t seem right that there are homeless people,” Hailey told reporters.

“I think everyone should have a place to live.”

This year, Fort’s goal is to grow 250lbs (113kg) of food, build 12 shelters, and delivers thousands of toiletries and hygienic items.

You can help her by buying items on her Amazon ‘wedding registry’ or by contributing to her GoFundMe campaign.
