Orion Jean is a ten-year-old in North Texas who is on an altruistic mission to spread kindness. This July, he was selected as the winner of the National Kindness Speech Contest. When he won, he decided to create “Race to Kindness” events of his own. Naturally, these events have the goal to spread kindness around the world.
Donating 619 Toys Was the Result from Orion’s First Event
Orion Jean entered the national kindness speech contest thinking that nothing would come of it. Still, he was paired with a coach and worked hard on improving the speech he was going to give. It turned out that it was good enough for people to vote in his favor and win him the contest. The prize was a significant cash prize which Orion used to start his own kindness project. He set his goal at donating at least 500 toys to other kids. This was the first in his series of events he called the Race to Kindness. On September 13, Orion was way past his goal and donated 619 toys to Children’s Health – a hospital in Dallas, TX.
Now Orion Has Partnered With Feed the City to Donate 100,000 Meals
Orion Jean’s campaign has now moved on to something different than toys. His next Race to Kindness event is about donating 100,000 meals to people in need, with a deadline set for Thanksgiving. For this endeavor, Orion has partnered with Feed The City, and on Halloween, they had already passed the 35,000 meal mark.
Each meal will include a bottle of water, a granola bar, apple sauce, fruit, and a positive handwritten note. Orion welcomes the help of people who want to pack meals, host a drop-off location, or help spread the message. The young boy also did not forget to thank all his donors for helping him fill a U-Haul truck with food. He also said that he knows people can change the world by being kind.
Artist Creates Coloring Pages Of Powerful And Inspiring Women
Artist Shine Caramia decided that instead of “doomscrolling” through lockdown, she was going to put her talents to good use and celebrate some of the most powerful and inspiring women on the planet… By making coloring pages of them!
Shine Caramia is the face behind Nirbhao Rocks, a company that creates beautiful and functional artwork. On her site, you’ll find everything from gorgeous ceramic buttons and bowls through to eco-friendly fabric shopping totes. It’s clear that Caramia has a passion for creating beautiful and inspiring things, but she recently decided to branch out into something a little bit different.
We Are Awesome
Recently, Nirbhao Rocks decided to launch a range of coloring pages called ‘We Are Awesome.’ Featuring powerful and inspiring women, along with non-binary people, these coloring pages are awe-inspiring! In fact, she has collated each of the pages – which you can download for just $3 each – into an entire coloring book. This means you could spend hours coloring in inspiring women, just to pass the time.
Color Your Favorites
So, who has Caramia featured? It seems as though this is a real who’s who list of women who have made a difference. The top-voted image on BoredPanda is, understandably, of Ruth Bader Ginsburg who recently passed away. However, the coloring pages also include people like Malala Yousafzai, Jane Goodall, Opal Tometi, Ali Wong, and Greta Thunberg. The ‘We Are Awesome’ coloring book features 60 incredible women and non-binary people, meaning you could color a new person every week and still have some left after a year!
There’s no denying that this coloring book is one of the best out there, for those who want to celebrate some of the most important women of our time – and beyond. Alternatively, just opt for your favorite from one of the ever-growing list of coloring pages instead.
