At age six a young Canadian girl decided to lift the burden of her own heart by helping the homeless man she'd seen eating from a garbage can. Since then Hannah Taylor has befriended hundreds of homeless persons and raised over $3 million to help 55 homeless shelters and missions across Canada. As the parent, the teacher, or the classmate of a child with a passion, you can support their dream of making a difference in our world.

    No one told her she couldn't do this! She is a great child, but so are her parents, her teacher, and others who listened and tried to help.

    The wonderful faith and positive attitude that resulted from helping someone in need is something we all can aspire to and be inspired by to change our own negative responses to our own problems into positive actions.

    At 5 years of age she was willing to sit with her sadness for a whole year. She didn't try to distract herself or convince herself it shouldn't be there. Then when she found something she could do to help, she put all of her intelligence to work to support her idea. Remarkable level of perseverance and capacity to stay with the unknown until what is known emerges.
