Champale Anderson, a black American mother of six is the kind of people our world needs.
Every afternoon, Anderson prepares and packs 100 lunch boxes for homeless and hungry kids in her neighborhood, New York Post reports.
At exactly 2:30 pm, she waits for the children by the bus stop in St Loius, a place she has called beautiful despite the fact that the place is poverty ridden.
She said the children are always waiting for her to be on that spot and that she never wants any kid to go through the rough patch she dealt with growing up.
“Those kids are waiting on me. I have to be out there because they are so excited. I didn’t have a great childhood. It was pretty rough. That made me not want any other kid to go through that,” she said.
The need to begin her charity called Champ’s Tear Drops, started when she observed some children begging very close to a gas station and her children’s friends were always coming over hungry.
She said some kids even coming back later at night to ask for another bag of good and she has always obliged them because that could be their only food.
Anderson does not serve the children the same food all the time as she creatively switches between meals to give them treats.
“They never know what I will have in the bag. I switch it up - special treats for my special babies. I don’t just put on the peanut butter and then the jelly, I mix it up with love," she said.
In trying to get more money, the mother of six raised a fund campaign for $1500 but got more as she was able to gather $39000.
She hopes to open a recreational centre for the children. She said though she knows she cannot stop the hard times, she could at least alleviate it in her way.
