When Carson Rudy first saw a Convoy of Hope truck surrounded by volunteers after a natural disaster, he knew he wanted to be part of the solution. Then, he was only 5 years old, but 12 years later, his passion has only grown. Carson set a goal of holding fundraisers and earn $250,000 over the course of six years. His dad, Sean Rudy, helped him think of creative ways to raise money.
It’s a lofty goal for anyone, much less a young boy. But he’s well on his way and hasn’t even reached adulthood.
“I’ve raised $125,000 so far. With God, all things are possible,” said Carson.
His cause is Convoy of Hope’s driving passion: to feed the world.
“He did three ‘up in the airs,’ where he lived up high on scaffolding for a week. He did that two different times! And then, he spent a week up on a semi truck for seven straight days,” Sean explained. “People were so moved by his dedication that they donated to his cause.”
Carson knows that no matter what, everyone can do something. He said, “I hope people are inspired to help others in need.”
Convoy of Hope is grateful for people like Carson who believe in the mission to bring hope to as many people as possible. If you’d also like to contribute to the work we’re doing around the world, click here.
