Random Act of Kindness: This Teenager helped Over 2000 people Since the Pandemic started, Launches his own foundation to help more people
Meet Sebbie Hall from Lichfield, Staffordshire, an 18-year-old teen boy, who set his life purpose to help people in need by his random act of kindness.
Sebbie started his acts of kindness to help young people who are isolated because of disadvantage/disability
Now with the help of his mother Ashley, he has now set up The Sebbie Hall Kindness Foundation and raised over £40,000 to help others.
He already helped over 2,000 people.
Sebbie Hall came up with the idea when he realized that some people lacked the technology to contact their friends at the time the lockdown began.
At first, he wanted to donate his iPad to a friend.
But when he shared the idea with his mom, Ashely Hall, she suggested to him that instead of donating random stuff, try to donate what they need.
Sebbie Hall has some physical and learning difficulties.
So he decided to help others like him, raising money to help disabled or vulnerable children.
He began his journey of goodness on March 16th, 2020.
“I feel lucky to be going out and meeting so many children,” said Sebbie Hall.
He bought lottery tickets with his pocket money and gave them to lucky random strangers.
He also provided IT equipment to differently-abled young people.
“He bought this friend a device at the end of the 10 days but because he enjoyed watching other people smile, he then wanted to continue,” said Ashley Hall, his mother.
“He’s had letters from Boris Johnson, the Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire. He had about £150 in cash for his 18th birthday and he insisted on putting it on his JustGiving page. We said ‘no Sebbie, that’s money for you to spend, but he said it would make him happier to donate it,” she added.
He received the World Compassion Award from The Supreme Master Ching Hai, a Buddhist humanitarian world leader, and was invited to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s carol concert at Westminster Abbey.
“I can’t believe it, all he wanted to do was raise £1,000 for doing 100 good deeds, but now he’s made such a difference, and [he has] the kindness foundation. It’s given him value to himself. For the last 17 years of his life, someone has always had to do things for him, but it’s given him this confidence that’s spurred him on and to show that you can do anything,” said Ashley Hall.
“To think when he was diagnosed, we were told he would never walk or talk or sit up even; he’s come from that and to think what he’s achieved,” she added.
Ching Hai awarded Sebbie $10,000 which helped him to set up his foundation.
Sebbie said, “It’s not about words, it’s about kindness.”
Donations to Sebbie’s fundraiser can be made here.
