Inspired Teen Gives Back Through Kindness Events
When life gave Lexi Kelley lemons, she chose to be sweet, not sour. While recuperating from a terrifying car accident, 12-year-old Lexi was showered with love and support from those closest to her.
"After I was back in school and in the process of healing," Lexi recalled, "I didn't need their support as much, but I realized how powerful it was!"
Lexi brought together a small group of friends and began brainstorming events that would give other kids like herself the opportunity to experience how rewarding it can be to give back to others who need help. From these moments with friends, the idea for Kids Helping Kids was born.
Today, Kids Helping Kids is a registered non profit organization, involving over 250 kids from 51 schools. One aspect of their work that they are very proud of is that every KHK project is initiated, developed and led by the kids in the group.
Watch and learn how Lexi is running the show and making a difference in the lives of others at her second annual Promising Pickings Prom Dress Event. She's living proof that it's possible to turn even the worst of circumstances into the best of opportunities for herself and others!
