This is Isiah Britt
Isiah Britt lives nearly 600 miles away from Flint, Michigan, but when the 7-year-old heard what students at one elementary school were dealing with, he knew he had to do something.
Students in Flint can’t wash their hands at school due to the crisis that’s wreaking havoc on the city’s water supply. He knew he couldn’t fix the situation himself, but he could at least alleviate the students’ worries of dirty hands with the next-best thing.
Isiah set up a gofundme page to raise money for hand sanitizer, which will kill some of the germs students face at school day-to-day.
He was only asking for $500 to buy 20 cases of hand sanitizer. What he got was, well… a lot more.
Isiah has raised over $11,000 and counting in the last 20 days, which is enough to give hand sanitizer to all of the elementary schools in Flint.
Needless to say, Isiah was ecsatic!
Donations flooded in from around the country, which made Isiah beyond happy, as he expressed in this video.
“That was the best day of my life, trying to help a different school,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re small. You can still do big things,” he said.
