At the age of 5, Hannah Taylor spotted her first homeless person in the back alleys of Winnipeg. This experience not only troubled her, but it drove her to do nothing less than change the world. The Ladybug Foundation, the charity Hannah helped establish, has raised over a million dollars to date. With her huge heart and can-do attitude, she preaches a simple message of "Share a little of what you have and always care about others." As this short documentary proves, we all have a lot to learn from Hannah's story.

Hold a fundraiser for the Ladybug Foundation. Hannah used the ladybug because it is a symbol of good luck. Have each student think of another symbol that is good luck and draw it. For grades 6 and 7, have students think of a foundation/cause they would like to support and write a paper explaining why they chose that foundation/cause. Check out the Ladybug Foundation for more information on Hannah and her cause.
