8-year-old Cavanaugh Bell, who began his personal food pantry was featured in President Joe Biden’s inauguration, which took place on Wednesday.
Cavanaugh Bell revealed that:
I spread positivity to inspire others to change the world. Because the pandemic left so many in need, I decided to make care packs to help elderly people in my community. And now, I’m able to gather supplies to give to families across the country.Cavanaugh Bell
He then those who supported him to ensure his dream becomes reality before adding the popular adage – “That’s why love wins.”
Cavanaugh also introduced Ant Clemons and Justin Timberlake who performed the song “Better Days”
Later the @bideninaugural Instagram account shared:
You’re never too young to make a big difference. Grateful for young people, like 8-year-old Cavanaugh Bell, stepping up in their neighborhoods and lending a hand when it matters most.
Initially, Cavanaugh created his care packages for the elderly residing in his neighborhood, making use of his personal savings gotten from Christmas and birthday. As more people heard of this kind gesture, donations grew. This led he and his mom to open a food pantry called Love is Greater than COVID-19.
On GoFundMe, he wrote:
After I was bullied and I felt a darkness inside of me, I knew I didn’t want other kids to feel the same way I felt. So, I asked my mom if she could help me spread love and positivity. And, the more I gave back to my community, the more I wanted to keep doing it.Cavanaugh Bell
Last year April, Vice President Kamala Harris tweeted indicating that Cavanaugh “proves that no one is ever too young to be a leader.” She then featured him on her digital show called “Kids with Kamala.”
I have this saying that, you know, we’re all born leaders and it’s just a matter of when you decide to kick it in and be a leader, And you’ve figured that out at a really early stage … that’s really, really, really incredible. And it’s so special and it’s very inspiring. You inspire me.Vice President Kamala Harris
