What exactly is a Citizen Kid?
A Citizen Kid is a lot of things. It’s any child that is willing to lend a helping hand and make someone’s day a bit brighter. It’s the little girl who asks her mom if she needs help at the end of a busy day, or the group of kids raising money for a non-profit through a lemonade stand.
Over the past few months we’ve featured some amazing Citizen Kids — like Sam, the 12-year-old who started a recycling business, and Ingrid, the ballerina with big dreams. And we knew there had to be more out there!
So we’ve been encouraging you all to nominate the awesome Citizen Kids in your life using #CitizenKid — and you certainly rose to the occasion. We were overwhelmed by the response and the incredible stories you shared.
Here, we celebrate the Citizen Kids you nominated. Prepare to be inspired as you read about these very talented kids and the extraordinary things they’re doing in their everyday lives.
