El corazón de los libros

Orion Jean has a history of giving. Last year, the Texas 10-year-old launched a toy drive for his local children’s hospital and raised funds to feed 100,000 meals to others on Thanksgiving.

These days, Jean is spreading his love of reading to disadvantaged children who may not have books at home. Jean has a goal to collect half a million books through book drives and fundraising events.

“You have to lead by example so others follow,” says the generous sixth grader.
