Sixth-Grader on a Mission to Change the World

“It’s more than just raising money, it’s about changing the world,” Preston Wood, a sixth-grader at Creative Montessori Academy, said. 

Preston has developed a heart for changing people’s lives and he is on a mission to do so. So, when Creative Montessori Academy was asking for school supply donations, he knew he had to help his friends who might not be able to afford new supplies. 

On September 16, 2019, Preston walked into the school with 11 boxes of school supplies to be donated. The supplies included: pencil bags, folders, erasers, glue sticks, stickers and even backpacks. He earned $150 by  doing chores through an app called BusyKid where he decided not to keep a dime to himself but to buy  school supplies 

“This is just the beginning. I want to help others,” Preston said. “Look out because my living room is full of socks right now to give to people who are homeless. I have lots of other ideas that I would like to give money to. It’s so much fun.”
