为流浪汉遮风避雨 九岁小女孩在行动


很多九岁的小女孩可能还在不亦乐乎地玩着过家家,但是同样九岁的Hailey Fort与她们不同。这个来自美国华盛顿州布雷默顿的小女孩通过自己的双手,为流浪汉们搭建房屋。Hailey从小就是个充满爱心的小姑娘,她五岁那年跟妈妈一起为一位流浪汉买了一个三明治。她从这个小小善行中感受到了快乐和满足,并且决定继续帮助流浪人士。之后四年里,她为无家可归的人们提供了成百上千磅的食物。如今,Hailey又发现了一个新的奉献爱心的途径——为流浪人士盖房子,而且初期建造十二间房屋的计划已经完成一半了。


在过去的四年里,Hailey在自己家的花园里种植当地农作物,然后把这些成熟的作物捐给当地的食物银行。光是去年一年,她就捐赠了128磅的食物。在认识了流浪汉Edward之后,她萌生了为流浪汉们盖房子的想法。Edward原本在当地超市工作,失业之后他也失去了自己的家。Hailey说,“我不想让他在恶劣的天气里还要露宿街头。这对于那些无家可归的人来说太不公平了。我觉得每个人都应该有个遮风避雨的家。”


在她父母和亚马逊公司承包商爷爷的帮助下,Hailey正式开启了她为Edward打造可移动睡房的计划。整个项目的花费中有3000美元(20095元)是由Together Rising赞助的。除此之外,Hailey同时还享有当地Lowes商店的五折优惠,并且收到了各地捐赠来的建筑材料。每一个8(2.4米)乘4(1.2米)英尺的木制房屋都配有窗户、可上锁的前门、可循环的牛仔布的绝缘层、乙烯基地面、干式墙、木瓦屋顶和太阳能灯。墙壁是由回收再利用的托盘拼接而成。根据当地的KING 5新闻报道,大部分的手工活都是Hailey自己动手完成的,包括使用射钉枪和电钻。她的父母则帮助她完成了其他一些大型的操作,比如使用电锯之类的。


第一组可移动房屋一旦完成,就会被放置在当地的教会附近。除了这十二个小房子,Hailey还希望能为无家可归的人们捐赠250磅食物、1000套厕所用品、5000个女性卫生用品和100件大衣。如果你也想加入Hailey 的爱心计划,可以通过Hailey’s Harvest Amazon Registry或是 GoFundMe赞助她并献上一份爱心。

9-year-old girl builds tiny homes from scratch for the homeless


Some 9-year-old girls are content with playing house, but not Hailey Fort—this Bremerton, Washington youth prefers to spend her time building tiny houses for the homeless. Hailey started helping the needy at just five years old when she and her mother purchased a sandwich for a hungry homeless man; this act of kindness inspired Hailey to grow hundreds of pounds of food for the homeless over the next four years. Now Hailey hopes to expand on her altruistic efforts by building tiny shelters for the homeless, and is halfway through constructing the first out of a dozen.


For the last four years, Hailey Fort has donated produce grown in her garden to the local food bank, with a whopping 128 pounds of food donated just last year. She was inspired to build tiny shelters after she met Edward, a homeless man who lost his job at the local supermarket. “I don’t really want him to be rained on by all the bad weather we get here,” Hailey told local news outlet KING 5 News. “It just doesn’t seem right that there are homeless people. I think everyone should have a place to live.”


With the help of her parents and her Arizona-based contractor grandfather, Hailey started building a mobile sleeping shelter for Edward. The building costs are partially covered by a $3,000 Together Rising grant, a 50-percent discount from her local Lowes store, and donated materials. Each eight-foot-by-four-foot wooden structure will have windows, a lockable front door, recycled denim insulation, vinyl flooring, drywall, shingled roof, and a solar-powered lamp. The walls will be made from recycled pallets. According to the KING 5 News, Hailey does almost all the work herself, from working with nail guns to electric drills. Her parents operate the big power saws.


The mobile structure is the first of a dozen planned tiny homes, which when complete, will be placed on a city-approved church lot. In addition to the 12 shelters, Hailey also plans to donate and deliver 250 pounds of food, 1,000 toiletries, 500 feminine hygiene products, and 100 coats to the homeless in 2015. You can help Hailey by buying items from her Hailey’s Harvest Amazon Registry or by contributing to her GoFundMe campaign.
