Anthony Arbaiza, a dad of two from Hershey, Pennsylvania, put it this way:

A 10-year-old launched her own charity to bring color to kids across the world.

"If a LOT of people collect just one box of crayons or one coloring book, we can make a bunch of kids happier."

When 10-year-old Bethany Kuster heard that a fourth grade class in Alabama couldn't afford markers and crayons, she knew she had to do something to help get them some.

Mr. Kupec, Bethany's teacher at the time, encouraged her to enlist the help of her classmates, and her brothers helped her make a PowerPoint presentation outlining her plan to have people donate markers and crayons. "It explained what I wanted to do to help others and I told them that it would be fun (it's always fun to be kind)," explained Bethany in an email.

But SPOILER ALERT: It wasn't as simple as they thought. Lucky for us, Justin documented their powerful journey in this eye-opening comic about being true to yourself — no matter how long it takes to figure out what that means to you.
