Each child in the world has something that makes them different from everyone else. Every now and then, people come across a particular child who just completely takes them back. South Carolina recently came across Cameron Smalls.

Many Americans are aware of the major flood that wiped through Louisiana this August. Many families were devastated with damages and are still trying to rebuild their lives today. “Thousands of people in Louisiana have lost everything they own and need our help now,” said Brad Kieserman, the Red Cross’ vice president of disaster services operations and logistics.

Cameron Smalls, just a boy from the Lowcountry, saw what happened to all of the communities in Louisiana. When he came across a photo of a devastated boy who lost everything, he wanted to make a difference.

With the help of the Mount Pleasant Police Department, Smalls and his mother recently traveled to Louisiana to donate toys,food, and clothes to the victims of the disaster.

“I’ve been working with the police officers, raising money at my church, in front of Target and doing some bake sales,” Smalls stated.

One of the mothers in Louisiana was very touched by what Smalls decided to do for her son. “It’s not every day that a kid wants to help, and your mama’s raising you right,” Whitney Comeau said.

It is amazing to see the hearts some of the children have in the Lowcountry. People like Cameron Smalls deserve to be recognized.
