Can one child make a difference and inspire others along the way? Pinewood Preparatory School fourth-grader Katie Stagliano, winner of Amazing Kids! first-ever “Launch My Dream!” T-shirt design contest, believes she can.
With the help of Amazing Kids!’ “Launch My Dream!” initiative (www.launchmydream.org), Katie is launching her dream to end childhood hunger.
Stagliano’s “No Hungry Children”-themed shirt was inspired after she grew a 40-pound cabbage, which fed 275 people at a local soup kitchen. Now her school, Pinewood Preparatory, and Charleston organization Fields to Families, is planting a school garden, growing food for local hungry children.
“I hope my T-shirt will spread the word that there should and could be no hungry children,” Stagliano said. “It’s important to stop world hunger. If kids grow a vegetable and donate it to a soup kitchen, they’re helping launch my dream. I hope Amazing Kids! can help launch dreams of many more kids.”
Amazing Kids! (amazing-kids.org) is a children’s educational charity and award-winning kids’ website. The debut of her “No Hungry Children” T-shirt marks the first in their line of “Launch My Dream!” CharityWear, hope-inspiring sportswear for kids and adults.
Stagliano is donating her 10 percent of T-shirt proceeds to hunger organizations. An additional 10 percent supports “Launch My Dream” to help kids like Stagliano launch their dreams.
What does the future hold for children like Stagliano with dreams to improve our world? With the help of “Launch My Dream!,” the sky’s the limit.
