Personal Hero - Astrid Graham

Personal Hero - Astrid Graham

How can a little 10 year old girl change the world? Astrid Graham is on a mission to find out! Unlike a typical young girl, Astrid's day revolves around how she can be of service to others. With a super huge heart and lots of passion, Astrid is showing how one person can make a difference!

Mom, Patricia, shared with me that Astrid always says, "the most important thing we can do for someone is the small acts of kindness, a smile, looking at someone and saying hello." Such wisdom from a little 10 year old girl! But the most amazing thing is that her journey started several years ago!

"The most important thing we can do for someone is the small acts of kindness, a smile, looking at someone and saying hello."

At the age of 7 Astrid became inspired after visiting her Great Nan in a nursing home and started asking questions about why some people were sitting alone. She started making craft items and handed them out to the people that did not have any visitors. At a very early age she was learning that not everyone had a good life. She saw one of her friends not receive any gifts for Christmas and this inspired her to find a way to make a difference.

In just one short year Astrid collected over 1000 toys and delivered them to an agency that handed them out to children that had nothing. Little Astrid was changing lives and had found a way to make a difference! Getting to know some of these children and hearing their stories helped Astrid learn how she could further be of help.

She decided to turn her hobby of tie-dying socks into a way to raise funds for care packages. "The bags are filled with fun things for the kids," Patricia said. "The bags are to help distract the kids and give them a few hours of feeling a little better and happy." So far Astrid has handed out over 60 bags and she is not stopping there!

Astrid, you have definitely shown how one person can make a difference! Thank you for spreading love, kindness and being a little Personal Hero. I look forward to following your journey and seeing where you go from here. You are changing the world!
