One Truly Amazing Kid
Congratulations to 10-year-old Katie Stagliano of Summerville,
Katie is the winner of the Amazing Kids! "Launch My Dream!" T-Shirt Design Contest and is the March 2009 Amazing Kid! of the Month on the Amazing Kids! website (www.amazing-kids.org)!
As part of our new "Launch My Dream!" initiative
(www.amazing-kids.org/launchmydream.html), Amazing Kids! is helping Katie launch her dream of "No Hungry Children."
12 Million Hungry Children in America
Did you know that in the United States alone, an estimated 12 million children go to bed hungry each night? And sadly, in these difficult economic times we face today, the number of hungry children both in the United States and internationally is increasing.
A 40-Pound Cabbage Feeds 275 People
Get inspired and read Katie's incredible story at: www.amazing-kids.org/akom3-09.html#top.
You'll learn about how she grew a tiny seedling into an amazing 40-pound cabbage in her backyard, and how she donated it to a local soup kitchen and fed 275 people!
Katie's amazing dream is to help feed hungry children, with the ultimate goal of ending childhood hunger. But to help her dream come true, she needs our help!

Calling All Kids!
Katie wants to encourage kids everywhere to grow vegetable seedlings in their backyard, or in a window box, so they can donate the vegetables to help fight childhood hunger. In her Amazing Kid! of the Month story, you will learn how she was able to enlist her entire school in her effort, and they are now planting a huge empty lot at their school with vegetables to feed the hungry in their community and to help feed students at their own school.
Parents can contact Katie to get advice about how their kids can get started through her Facebook page which her mother Stacy has set up: www.facebook.com/home.php#/group.php?gid=48567540431
Parents must sign up for Facebook in order to be able to add a comment to Katie's page.
