He is walking 280 miles, with his red wagon from Tallahassee, FL to Atlanta, GA to raise awareness and funds for the nearly 1.3 million homeless kids across the U.S. While I knew there was a growing population of homeless youth under 18, I had no idea it was 1.3 million. That is distressing. Every kid should have a place to call home and one filled with warmth, support and love. Zach knows it takes funds to support the cause, but how smart is he that at his age he knows it takes education too. I am amazed, stunned, a-gogged at this young boy! After watching his video on his website, he has such a big vision. He 'gets it' better than most adults I've met.
You can follow Zach's 280 mile trek at http://www.zachtracker.com/. If you feel you are drawn to donate to support his efforts, you can do that through his website. If you are going to be in Atlanta, GA on 11/17/08, you can meet Zach on the steps of the Capital.
I am so moved by Zach, I will be donating a part of my upcoming book sales to his charity.
