Peyton is an amazing little girl with a very generous heart! At just 8 years old, she started a charity that has helped many street children.
Even during the pandemic, the girl has struggled to distribute clothes, toys and hygiene items to the children served by the project, as well as to their families.
Peyton has a mission and takes it very seriously. She wants to give children who face serious uncertainties a reason to smile. And she has done so bravely.
Peyton's greatest inspiration was great-uncle Ricardo, who lived on the streets and always told about the difficulties he was experiencing at the time.
She then began to think of a way to prevent children suffering so much lack of food, clothes and, especially, toys. For Peyton, childhood should be used in the best way!
That was when she came up with the idea of creating Eye of a Child. Peyton collects donations and delivers them directly to homeless shelters in Milwaukee and Los Angeles, United States.
The little girl collects donations in all forms. She creates homemade crayons and T-shirts and hearts to sell in an itinerant shop that circulates through Los Angeles neighborhoods.
And everything becomes a reason to help others. This year, Peyton's birthday wish is to organize a ‘community party’ and invite some children in need. Instead of receiving gifts, she wants guests to have the opportunity to deliver them to those in need.
Peyton's goal is to raise another $ 1,000 in donations now in 2021. She is determined!
And for anyone else who has a dream, Peyton always gives a very important piece of advice.
"If you have a dream, follow it, don't give up, because you can probably reach your goal and I believe in you," said the girl.
