Zachary Bonner was profiled tonight on the NBC nighly news with Bryan Williams. I was so inspired by his "Walk Across America" trek I took the time to google his website and came to GuideStar to view his 990. I will definately make my contribution.

The Little Red Wagon Foundation was started by Zach Bonner, age 12... yes, that's right, 12. He started doing charity work following devastating hurricanes in Florida several years ago and everything snow-balled from there. His goal is to raise awareness and funds for homeless children across the country (and around the world). He is doing this by walking. So far, he has walked from Tampa, FL, to Washington, D.C., and he will begin a walk in May that will take him from Florida to Los Angeles, CA. My son, Dylan, met up with him very early in his first walk, from Tampa to Tallahassee. He walked one day with him and then I couldn't talk my son OUT of walking, so we continued on with Zach and his mom, walking as much as we could, helping out with their secondary transportation, etc. Our active participation in the walks ended in Georgia, but Zach and his extraordinary efforts are always in our hearts and minds!
