Took part in a sponsored onesie run to raise money for Children In Need.


Age 9, from Castle Donington
Charlotte's Hearts and Stars - When Emily's best friend Charlotte was diagnosed with Lukemia earlier this year, Emily started Charlotte's Hearts and Stars together with her friends at her cheerleading and gymnastics group to help raise money for Charlotte's dream to visit Florida. When Charlotte started losing her hair, Emily had her head shaved so that Charlotte didn't feel she was the only one with no hair. In a couple of weeks Emily is going to raise even more money by sitting in a pool full of green slime.


Age 13, from London
Kid to Kid - The "Kid to Kid" project was founded by Isabella to improve English speaking skills of children in developing countries. Isabella implemented this by connecting native English-speaking children with underprivileged children who are in need of improving their English skills. Kid to Kid is currently teaching a small number of children in Brazil as only 5% of Brazilians speak English fluently, the project aims to give kids from underprivileged backgrounds the opportunity to learn and further develop their skills. Isabella plans to expand Kid to Kid into more communities in Brazil and then to other developing countries.
