These ordinary kids have done some pretty extraordinary things such as giving a home to a homeless person, helping kids around the globe, giving the gift of sight, saving money, giving hope and healing to others, and have made countless dreams come true for so many. They have also extended their kindness through crafts and making the world a better place one kind action at a time.
