Kids in Action - Emilie

All over the world kids are coming up with creative ways to make a difference.

See how Emilie helped raise money for the victims of the floods in Pakistan. 

Q: How old are you?
A: I’m 9 years old.
Q: Where do you live?
A: I live in Rome, Italy.
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up?
A: I want to be an actress when I grow up.
Q: Why did you want to raise money for the victims of the floods in Pakistan?
A: My mom told me about the flood so it gave me an idea. I wanted to raise money because I was feeling bad about the people who need lots of help and I was thinking about how I could help them. 
Q: How did you raise the money?
A: I raised the money by making a lemonade stand.  I was at my grandma’s house and it was summer and had the idea to sell lemonade. When my mom told me about the floods in Pakistan I thought I could give the money from the lemonade stand to the World Food Programme to help.
Q: How much did you raise?
A: With the lemonade stand I raised $200.00 and I made a little speech at my grandma’s church and I raised $500.00.
Q: What would you say to another kid who thought that they couldn’t make a difference in the world? 
A: I would say that he could always make a difference in the world.  It doesn’t always have to be money it can be donating things. If everybody did a little thing in the end it could just make a big, big difference in the world.
