At 12, boy’s walked an activist’s path

In 2004, when Hurricane Charley devastated parts of Florida, 6-year-old Zach Bonner decided to try to help his neighbors who had no water. Going from door to door, pulling his red wagon, the boy asked neighbors to give up some of their stockpiled water to help those in need. The water the boy collected eventually filled 27 pickups and gave him a taste for helping others. Since then, he’s started his own nonprofit, the Little Red Wagon Foundation, and has raised thousands of dollars and collected food and school supplies for needy children. He has walked hundreds of miles to raise awareness of the plight of homeless children, appeared on “Good Morning America” and received a presidential service award.
