Said Noah, “In the unprecedented times that we are living in today, it has been inspiring to see humanity come together to help one another, and I’ve been especially drawn to the stories of kids using their creativity to bring resources to their communities. After all, the person who’s going to bring us a better tomorrow is a kid who’s out there doing it today!”
