Eleven-year-old Cartier Carey has just become an internet sensation. This comes after a picture as well as the short story about how he became a hero to single moms has been making its rounds on various social networks.
The little boy wanted to help make a difference in the lives of single mothers. This is when he came up with the decision to set up a lemonade stand, wherein he clearly sold tons and tons of lemonade since he was able to make enough money to buy 22 000 baby diapers.
Even more touching than the fact that this little kid worked long and hard to raise money is perhaps the fact that the money was meant to ease the burden on the shoulders of single mothers who often struggle to make ends meet.
"11-year-old Cartier Carey has raised money this summer with his lemonade stand, enough to buy over 22 000 diapers to give away to single moms. This should go viral. Amazing kid!" wrote Naseema Mustapha in the Facebook post.
Facebook users and Stayers alike were truly touched by the actions of the little one. They shared tons of comments beneath the post, mostly commending the boy for being so young and making a difference in the lives of others.
Here are some of their comments.
Vichelle LeeAnn Johnson said:
"Wow! That's awesome!"

"Not all heroes wear capes. Much love and respect."
Briefly.co.za also reported a local woman recently became the change she wanted to see when she started a community garden to help locals in her village. According to her Facebook post in popular group ImStaying, she started the garden to help youths.
Zandile Mthembu explained that the youngsters in her village do not have much to do but drink a lot of alcohol and sit around being unproductive. This is when she started the garden, which she uses to rehabilitate those who've developed a drinking addiction.
In the post, she also explains how her garden not only employs 10 people, it also employs five temporary staff members. Zandile's hopes of making a difference are also achieved as many are fed and kept busy working in the garden fields.
