Joshua’s Heart: Help Kids Help the World

Joshua Williams, @joshuasheart, is a very young man on a mission to end hunger in Miami and beyond. What started as a 5 year old's insistence to feed a hungry man now feeds thousands of families in Miami every month.

Joshua is a Prudential Spirit of Community Award winner and his story is an uplifting one.

This is another one of those shows you'll want to listen to with your kids or students and is a great one to share with parents because Joshua's mom takes the line to talk about her response to his desire to feed hungry people.

One of my favorite things said in this podcast is when Joshua's Mom talks about empowering him to pursue his passion. She's tired but she does it anyway. I also loved his answer to the question when I asked him if he had $100K what he'd do with it. If all of us would live with such passion to meet the needs of poverty and hunger in the world!
