“We made fun of the boy at school, but that didn’t break him. He chose the best way to get back at and embarrass the culprits because he succeeded in changing the world for the better.
Bullying affects many people: children and adults. Many undergo a painful experience of intimidation, causing a person’s physical and mental state to weaken.
However, there are those who turn a traumatic experience completely around and do not give up.
So, Cavanaugh Bell, at seven years old, instead of getting angry with everyone, decided to save it instead.
“When I faced bullying and felt darkness in my soul, I already knew one thing for sure. I didn’t want other kids to feel like that,” admitted Kavanaugh.
The boy was determined to become an ambassador of good deeds and positivity.
Kavanaugh’s first investment was his own money, which he managed to accumulate.
With it, he bought everything he needed: from food to toiletries. The Good Samaritan distributed the acquired items to elderly neighbors.
Over time, his small project to help others became so popular that the boy and his mother acquired a whole warehouse where they kept all their stuff.
Cavanaugh’s good deeds didn’t stop there. After a conversation with his mother, he decided that he really wanted to help the residents of the Indian reservation (the boy’s family has Indian roots).
“Mom explained to me that there are those who live in the reservation. In some families, there isn’t even the most basic – water and electricity,” said the boy.
Thanks to financial assistance and the responsiveness of those who are not indifferent, the boy and his mother managed to fill two large trucks with useful items twice.
Cavanaugh’s mother, Lacey, shared her plans with an humanitarian organization to help reservation families.
“He believes he can save everything. And I believe him. There are no obstacles for him, I love that innocence in him,” said the organization’s director.
The boy hopes that bullying and ridicule will disappear from the surface of the planet. One would like to believe that through his example, he will inspire not only his peers but also adults to do good deeds.
It’s so nice when everyone is at least a little kinder to each other.”
