AnyPromo Spotlight on: Brae’s Brown Bags
We love connecting with our customers and even moreso- finding out what drives their pursuits. We were recently inspired by a young man who is making a positive impact in his community.
Braeden, a 10-year old from Bear, Delaware started his charity last year after winning the 2013 Healthy Lunchtime Challenge. He went on to attend the Kids’ State Dinner where he met the President and First Lady. "Brae’s Brown Bags" or “3B” was his answer to the First Lady’s inquiry as to how he would pay the experience forward.
According to Brae’s Facebook Page, “Brae’s Brown Bags” was started to help homeless and low-income people have a means to obtain healthy snacks and water. Brae has handed out more than 1,200 brown bags which contain not only some healthy sustenance, a message from Brae and some information regarding local services and outreach, but now they include books for children.
This past April, Brae was celebrated at the 2014 Governor’s Youth Service Awards Banquet and has recently attended the Leadership Summit in Newark, DE and the Food Bank of Deleware Leadership Day. Amongst his other distinctions, Brae has written two grants and received awards for both. He aspires to become an archaeologist and a writer when he grows up.
If you’re in the area, Brae invites you to attend the “3B Summer Celebration” on August 23 in Newark, DE. (Invitation pictured).
Thanks for your inspiring work, Brae! We can’t wait for what’s in store for you.
