Jordan and Niko, our two amazing young children who, upon hearing that their dad and I had signed up to participate in this year’s Good Misfit project, immediately wanted to be a part of it.Not only did we let them participate, we decided to hand over the entire fundraising effort over to them completely and this is what they’ve come up with!
They are running a “Pocket Change To Change Our World” fundraiser from June 1st - June 30th and have recruited their classmates, neighborhood friends, local businesses, and family throughout their community in Duarte, California.
Jordan and Niko are asking everyone they know to collect all the pocket change they have laying around the house, between the seats in the car, or in that purse you only use once in a while and donate it to this worthy cause. Their plan is to raise a minimum of $500 toward Good Misfit’s $15,000 goal which will be used to build a windmill for the village of Gambella in Kenya, Africa.
Gambella village in Kenya needs a windmill to complete its five-year journey towards sustainability. The windmill will help irrigate the crops of 500 families all year round, thereby providing them with the ability to eat fresh produce every day and sell the excess in the local markets, eliminating any need for aid. This will serve as an empowering graduation present for a village that is in the final stages of GHNI’s rigorous Transformational Community Development program.
Jordan and Niko are living proof that you don’t have to be rich, or have more time, or even be an adult to make real changes in the world!

Jordan and Niko cashing out their personal “vacation jar” in order to donate it to the Good Misfit Windmill Project. These kids are not just “talking the talk” they are also “walking the walk” and they are my tiny superheroes I could not be any prouder! <3
