Campbell Remess is a boy with a heart of gold. When he was 9, he asked his Mom if he could buy presents for kids who were in his local hospital. His Mom told him it would be too expensive, so he said, “I’ll make them then.” Since then, Campbell has been sewing stuffed animals in his bedroom during his free time for children who are suffering. He had never sewn anything before, and his first little teddy bear took him around five hours to make. Now, he is able to make a bear in around one hour. Since finding out about his cause, many people began to donate materials for Campbell to use.
He has personally made an estimated 900 stuffed animals that have been given to sick children and adults. Earlier this year, Campbell helped organize and host a charity gala dinner where he helped raise $26,000 for charity, and he wants to help further research on a cure for cancer.
“I think it’s awesome that he does that sort of thing.” Campbell’s friend said, “They’re kids that haven’t smiled in ages… and when they get given the bear, they smile.”
