Zach Bonner & The Little Red Wagon

...
Zach Bonner has raised $350,000 in donations for charity. He walked from Valrico to Washington D.C. and back-a 2,578 mile round-trip journey-and has been interviewed close to 200 times. He has spent nearly half of his life fighting for underprivileged youth. And he's only 12. From Good Morning America to the BBC and four of the last five US presidents, everyone wants to know the blue-eyed, spiky-haired founder of the Little Red Wagon Foundation. In a nutshell: Zach enjoys tennis and swimming, his favorite movies are Forrest Gump and (not surprisingly) Pay it Forward, he has read the Harry Potter series "about ten times" and he really likes Elton John's music. Oh, and he represents the more-than 1.3 million homeless children living in America. Typical sixth grader stuff, really. "It bothers me what homeless kids go through," Zach says. It all started with a case of water. Hurricane Charley was projected to slam into Tampa Bay and the Bonner family stocked up on supplies, but the storm swerved south and hit Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte instead. Zach was 7 at the time, and he heard the news unfold on the radio. He told his mom they had to help. "We've got water, let's donate it," his mom, Laurie, remembers him saying.
B0029614 copy The Bonner family donated the case, 27 truckloads of water and other supplies that Zach collected over four months. Zach, who is a student of the Florida Virtual Academy, felt great about his accomplishment, but he still felt his mission wasn't complete. "He was always asking me what to do when it ends," she says about Zach's projects. Red wagon in tow, Zach decided to spread his efforts into Louisiana and Mississippi to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. As money poured in, Laurie helped create the Little Red Wagon Foundation, now a nonprofit organization. "She does the paperwork stuff," says Zach, who does much of the charity work solo. From there, he developed a monthly backpack giveaway for Katrina schoolchildren and gave Christmas presents to the victims during the holidays. On his tenth birthday, he started a new expedition: He made a 23-day trek from Valrico to Tallahassee. Zach, along with his mother and sister, walked about a dozen miles a day and slept in an RV donated by Lazydays. The walk raised approximately $25,000 in money and supplies. The next year he lined up sponsors such as Smithfield Hams in Plant City, Publix, McDonald's, Cracker Barrel and Build-a-Bear and walked from Tallahassee to Atlanta, and later to Washington, D.C.

"Zach is the best." Laurie said she's shocked at how far Zach has gone with the Little Red Wagon Foundation. Her only rule: "I've always told him that you can keep doing this as long as you're having fun." And Zach has no plans to stop anytime soon.
...
Zach reacted to the news like he does to everything else: humbly and calmly. Laurie says Zach may not show it but he's very proud of what he's done. "I never thought charity work would be such a life changer," she says with a smile.
