Liam’s Lunches of Love

Thanks to this Boston Globe story. I came across 10-year-old Liam Hannon, who lives in Central Square, Cambridge. For the past five months, Liam has wheeled a wagon around his neighborhood handing out handmade lunches with his father. It started with some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and has grown into something much bigger. Over Thanksgiving, for example, he worked with the Hildebrand Family Self-Help Center to deliver Thanksgiving meals to homeless families in the area. “He’s a normal kid who just has an abnormally big heart,” Hildebrand’s director of development, Krystle Kelly, told the Globe.

He’s got a website and a Facebook group and he’s generated a following. Add me to the list. Today, I made a donation to Liam’s Lunches of Love, as he’s called the program, through Gofundme. That’s one heroic kid – a real inspiration.
