NY high school sophomore Macallan Durkin was just 11years-old when her family returned from three years in Botswana. While living there she had the opportunity to work alongside adults raising orphaned animals in several animal sanctuaries. One day while leaving the sanctuary, she noticed some children eating scraps of food from garbage cans. She asked her mother what they were doing and was told they were hungry. Durkin wondered why there were places for homeless, orphaned animals, but not for children. Once home she decided to do something to help those children. Her efforts turned into the sale of fair-trade products through her nonprofit site GoodyGoodies.org. Providing a meaningful vehicle for youth advocacy to provide assistance to children through the sale of fair trade products, presentations, and workshops Durkin’s organization raises awareness and funds education, food, and hope to needy children.
