Yours Humanly Announces Three Recipients of its Children Have the Power to Empower℠ Award
Quarterly award recognizes outstanding acts of goodness performed by children
By: Yours Humanly
The most recent 2018 award recipients are Angelica Krubeck, 11, of Cumming, GA, Nathaniel Grinchpun, 7, of Dania Beach, FL, and Jayden Perez, 9, of Woodland Park, NJ.
"We commend these young people for their compassion and hard work, and for being the kind of people who think of others before self," says Yours Humanly Founder & CEO Sunny Singh. "They are making a difference in the lives of others and we encourage them to continue to do what they can to ease life's journey for those who struggle."
Angelica Krubeck is being recognized for the work she performs through her own nonprofit Super Science Kids. By combining her two passions—science and helping children—she is engaging at risk children beyond the field of science and empowering them to believe in their potential and in themselves. She builds and delivers science kits; she teaches science to youngsters; she presents to organizations to gain their support and funding; and she partners with science professionals to provide science demonstrations to children. To date, she has made an impact on the lives of more than 2,000 at-risk youth.
Nathaniel Grinchpun is being recognized for the work he performed on behalf of men, women, and children in San Sebastian, Puerto Rico, affected by Hurricane Maria (2017). Grinchpun spent six weeks going door to door, delivering gallons of water, cans of food, and his own clothes to people greatly in need. He offered people he had never met before his hugs and prayers and spent time with them talking, sharing, and lifting their spirits. His care and commitment made an impact on an entire town in Puerto Rico.
Jayden Perez is being recognized for the service he performed on behalf of men, women, children, and animals in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria (2017). He has volunteered his time and organized outside resources to send food, toys, and supplies to people in need in Puerto Rico. He held a Christmas toy drive and donated his own Christmas toys, money, and other gifts to children in Puerto Rico. He collected more than 1,100 toys and more than $10,000 to ship the toys to Puerto Rico and provide for other needs, and travelled to the island to personally hand out the toys to children. He visited orphanages and distributed funds to a church for a new roof.
Singh cites American author Richelle E. Goodrich, who wrote, Every sunrise is an invitation for us to arise and brighten someone's day.
"Angelica, Nathaniel, and Jayden are living those beautiful words with their selfless acts of goodness."
