12 year old the new face of compassion

On the football field, heroes come in all sizes. Out on the turf you quickly realize that the greatest individual efforts make the team stronger. When the coach hands you the ball, you lead your team into the end zone.

So when Coach Smith of the Sherwood Park Peewee Bulldogs football team handed him a $20 bill and challenged him to ‘pay it forward,’ 12 year old Dawson Smadis took matters into his own hands. In just one week this visionary young man turned his $20 into more than $1,000 to put toward our Growing Compassion campaign.

How did he do it? Watch his video and see.
