Seven year old girl Avery Bell is one youngster who impresses me with her heart of compassion for foster children in Scottsdale Arizona by getting assistance from her father Andrew Schmid by asking for fidget toys that she will collect. Avery got the idea for asking for fidget toys to be donated to foster children in Scottsdale after she suffered an injury that placed her in a wheelchair until she could walk again. Avery's mother gave her some fidget toys as a way to assist her daughter to heal faster and keep her happy until she was able to walk with crutches as soon as she was able to leave the use of her wheelchair. The pastor of Avery's church issued a challenge to members of his congregation to do their part to give back to their community for the Christmas holidays. Avery will be doing her part to raise funds via GoFundMe.com to raise $14,000 dollars to donate fidget toys to 14,000 foster children in her community. She is hoping that thanks to the free publicity from her story on how fidget toys eased her anxiety during her healing process, she will be able to help other children who need some cheering up this holiday season.

Such a touching and heartwarming initiative. She has a heart of gold. Not even many adults could think of spending time raising something for kids or people in need (myself included) All I could think of is my family. May her tribe increase!
