Do you remember when I posted about the new segment I am starting on here and my Youtube Channel? If not you can check it out here .
I just had my first interview not too long ago and I am so excited to share some extra thoughts about it on here!
Firstly go check out the interview below or keep reading and check it out later.
So in this first ever segment of Message From Another Walk of Life I talked to a young 10 year old boy named Noah.
Noah decided to start a project to fund raise money for one of the charity races he does with his mom this project evolved into Atomic Stitch which makes coffee sleeves and donates the proceeds to charity, more specifically the soup kitchen.
I learned about this on a sewing group on Facebook which I am part of to find supplies for a product which will be announced very soon! Noah’s mother was looking for some scrap fabric that no one wanted so Noah could make more coffee sleeves and they would be environmentally friendly as well because they would reuse fabric that would otherwise be thrown away.
Noah’s product is very nice. (see picture below) and he has already made over 150$ for charity! I mean when looking at the majority of people I think that is more than most people give to charity in a couple months maybe even in a year for some.
I asked Noah about the process of making these coffee sleeves and it seems he does all the sewing with a little help from his Mom. I think this is a great partnership, Noah seems to have a big part in the direction of Atomic Stitch and the fabrication of the coffee sleeves but the Mom seems to be the driving force of the promotion and everything related to helping sell them. Theres nothing wrong with this of course, in fact I think it’s a great thing! A mother showing her son how to be part of a Powered Crowd for positive change and helping him learn how to grow an initiative what can be better?
Overall it was a great interview. I loved how Noah was with all his achievements in Atomic Stitch is just a regular kid who loves video games as he told me. The only difference is that Noah saw something he found unfair like people not having food and decided to take action on it.
I think this is a lesson we can all learn from. If we see something we think is wrong or unfair let’s take action and make steps towards changing them. It doesn’t need to be a whole project like Atomic Stitch or Powered Crowd because even small steps in the right directions are successes. Like I always say if we all do something to make the world a better place the world would be a completely different place!
That’s it for today. If you want to go check out Atomic Stitch here is their Facebook page where you can look and order their coffee sleeves. https://www.facebook.com/stitchatomic/
Until next time think of Noah’s example and start making some steps big or small to make some positive change in issues that are close to you or that you care about.
