10-year-old who helped donate 100,000 meals is on a mission to spread kindness

Orion Jean is a kid on a mission. His goal: to spread kindness to as many people as he can and inspire others to do the same. It all started last year when Orion’s elementary school teacher in Texas suggested that the then 9-year-old enter the National Kindness Speech Contest. “I decided that I was just going to give it a shot and see how it would go,” Orion tells Yahoo Life. He gave a speech about how kindness could “change a nation,” and won the competition, receiving a $500 cash prize. He quickly realized he wasn’t going to use all of that money. “I’m a kid,” Orion says, “I have everything that I could ever want. But there are people who don’t.” Orion, who says his parents instilled in him that “kindness is a virtue that we should all try to possess,” came up with the idea of the Race to Kindness campaign — a series of events to help others. Orion describes Race to Kindness as “just an idea where I hoped that I would be able to spread kindness and people would be able to join the race by spreading kindness in their own communities.”
