One six-year-old kid is looking to fight the homeless crisis in the RMWB.
Walter and Gladys Kindergarten Student Michael Bridgeman is taking his creative side and turning his art into the project ‘Michael’s Hope.’
The idea is to sell his art – a person in the shape of an H – and 500 pins, giving all the proceeds to the Centre of Hope.
“It kind of made me sad that they were homeless, that they didn’t have a home,” said Michael.
It all started when Michael’s mom Michelle told him that there were people who didn’t have a roof over their head. He then took it upon himself to help.
“I didn’t think that he would go this route, lots of times when you tell kids something it goes in one ear and out the other,” added Michelle.
Right now, Michael wants to sell as many pins and art as he possibly can.
“All I can do – to get as much money as I can get.”
So far, he’s been able to raise just over $1,000.
People can buy the pins at the Centre of Hope.
