11-year-old donates to homeless from soap line profits
Donovan Smith is incredibly thoughtful and impressive. The 11-year-old boy is using his inventiveness and entrepreneurial spirit to help the homeless.
Donovan, who lives in New Mexico, has created a line of soaps, which he sells. He donates a portion of his sales to combat homelessness.
Donovan, 11, is the youngest vendor at Rail Yards Market in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where he sells many of his delicious-looking (but definitely inedible) soap products, KRQE News 13 reported. Mixing aloe vera and goat’s milk to concoct his colorful creations, Donovan’s business, Toil and Trouble, has become a local hit. […]
“They’re fun,” Casey, Donovan’s mother, told KRQE News 13 of her son’s creations. “And the fact that they actually have the potential to help someone else makes it even better.”
20 percent of Donovan’s profits are donated to the Supportive Housing Coalition of New Mexico. The organization helped Donovan and his mother get back on their feet when they struggled with homelessness three years ago.
Kudos to Donovan for his ingenuity and selflessness!
