My friend Jeremy’s daughter, Charlotte, decided she wanted to help people in need during the pandemic. So she spent this past weekend making artwork for $.75 a piece with 100% of proceeds benefitting United Way. All of her work was then shared on her dad's Instagram story to abide by current social distancing rules.

In 48 hours, Charlotte inspired 60 people to give a total of $520!

She's 7. S-E-V-E-N.

Let's all be a little more like Charlotte. And not just now, during this time of crisis. But well beyond it.
