Meet Sam! He is smart, interesting, and kind.
Sam has been involved with The B Fund since its founding in 2014. Throughout the past three years, he has been an active participant in many of The B Fund’s signature events, including the Halloween Candy Drive, Lemon-AID Stands, Walk-a-thons, and much more! These events have instilled in Sam a desire to help others, especially critically ill children and their families.
Sam had so much fun giving back with The B Fund that he wanted to spread the word so that others could get involved, too. Using his writing talents, this 11-year-old wrote letters to several local business leaders to invite them to get involved with The B Fund! He decided to address his outreach letters to the CEO of Massport, the CEO of Delta Airlines, and the Manager of the Four Seasons in Boston.
This outreach got Sam thinking about different ways that he can continue his involvement throughout the year, and he and his brothers are hoping to start an apple picking event in the fall to help raise awareness and funds for The B Fund!
So who is Sam? Here are some fun facts about this thoughtful boy:
- Sam’s favorite color is blue.
- His favorite food is sushi.
- His favorite movie is Pirates of the Caribbean.
- His favorite toy is his deck of cards.
- His favorite songs are from the Hamilton soundtrack!
In all of Sam’s work with The B Fund, he has served as a wonderful role model for other children looking to use their time, talents, and treasures to help others. Thanks to his outreach efforts, more individuals have learned about The B Fund from the perspective of a child participant.
