Meet Carson: ZOE’s First Campaign Partner

ZOE was excited to add another easy way for our supporters who are passionate about empowering orphans and vulnerable children to get involved. It is an online giving platform that makes it easy to share the story of Zoe Empowers with family and friends.

8-year-old Carson heard about the opportunity and volunteered to be ZOE’s first fundraising campaigner. He made a list of Gifts he wanted to send to kids and set a goal of $1,305. His mom was concerned that he had set his goal too high. She suggested he take the cow (a $500 gift) off of his list. Carson insisted that the cow was too important to orphans building news lives, and it remained on his page.

Carson shared his page by email and social media. He told his friends, family and church members. Within five days, he raised more than $1,000! God’s faithfulness to the faith of a child is a beautiful thing to watch unfold.

When asked why he wanted to fundraise for orphans around the world, he said: “I went to a Zoe Empowers information meeting at my church recently, and I left both sad and happy. Sad because there are kids in this world the same age as me, who don’t feel loved, but happy because ZOE is there to help them.”

He continued: “ZOE helps orphans to get themselves out of poverty! I learned that Zoe Empowers provides the orphans a three-year program to give them support, training, skills, and tools to learn to take care of themselves long-term by growing their own food and starting up their own businesses. The kids end the program able to take care of themselves, their family, and live a better life. That’s cool.”

When Carson asked what his favorite part of helping the ZOE kids become empowered was, he replied, “learning about the impact animals can have in the life of an orphan.” He was excited to help orphans “get back on their feet.” Carson’s story inspires us to believe in God’s mighty power to work through those who are willing to say “yes” and act on His behalf.

No matter how old you are, you can always help others. We hope this story will serve as an inspiration for you to start your own fundraising page or just purchase Gifts that Give Dreams for your friends and loved ones any time of year.
