12 Year Old Zach Bonner is Still Most Inspiring Us in 2010

Media is still talking about Zach Bonner, the 12 year old philanthropist and activist selected as Beliefnet’s Most Inspiring Person of 2009. He won the title for his compassionate, selfless service to homeless children.

Not only has Zach made it his mission to call attention to the plight of needy kids, he literally walks his talk. Last year he embarked on “From My House to the White House,” a walk to bring attention to his cause.

He’s been doing community service since he was 6 years old! And he truly believes you are never too young to make a difference in the world.

“I still do kid stuff,” says Zach. “I still play with my friends and play video games and stuff like that. But this is a lot of fun. And for me, this is my baseball and this is my soccer. And this is what I like to do and this is my hobby.”


Zach is the youngest winner in the decade-long history of this award. Read more about him and listen to him speak about his work in his own words.
