An extremely moving article about a 9 year old’s charitable disposition and the legacy she left behind, encourages that you are never too young to make a difference and that even a short life holds much meaning and promise for the future. Rachel Beckwith wanted to raise money for charity:water for her ninth birthday in lieu of presents. Charity:water brings clean safe drinking water to people in developing countries. Her goal of $300 fell short at $220 by her birthday. After her tragic death the money started pouring in to support Rachel’s birthday wish and honor the life of the young life that ended so abruptly. May we never underestimate the power of children and their desire to give to charity and may we always remember the difference a person can make even after they are gone.
