With more than 9,000 homeless people living in Michigan, according to the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness, one little girl is doing her part to help the problem. Addisyn Goss started a nonprofit, Snuggle Sacks, which provides survival kits to homeless folks in Michigan full of basic supplies like snacks, shampoo and socks.
The 11-year-old was inspired to get involved with the cause because she didn’t know her grandfather for most of her life and for six years he was homeless. With the issue so close to her heart, Addisyn is fully dedicated to Snuggle Sacks, creating more than 1,000 to donate every month, with help from her family. And she does this all while being a student with extracurriculars. She’s proving you can make a difference at any age and she plans to keep her nonprofit going far into the future.
“This is going to be my main priority,” Addisyn explains. “I want to go to school for business and continue Snuggle Sacks.”
