(Boston, MA)- On Sunday, October 15th, 11-year-old Kailey Moras of Methuen, MA was recognized by The Mary Jo Brown Foundation, a charity that is focused on making a difference in people’s lives through various programs and acts of service.  Moras was named the grand prize winner of the Mary Jo Brown Foundation Kindness Campaign at the Annual Indoor Luau for her continued efforts to support nonprofitCradles to Crayons®.

Since 2014, Moras has supported Cradles to Crayons by organizing clothing collections for local children in need. Rather than receiving birthday presents, Moras prefers to collect and donate items for those less fortunate. In December 2016, Moras donated over 500 items to the Cradles to Crayon’ Giving Factory including onesies, 2t/3t sized items, hats, gloves and more!

Kailey collects these items and spreads awareness through her Facebook page, Kailey’s Fantabulous Fundraising. Through the channel, Kailey is able to engage and encourage her followers to support her goal through monetary and product donations.

The Mary Jo Brown Foundation’s Kindness Campaign aims to encourage young people to join in spreading smiles and recognizes children up to the age of 18 years who have selflessly gone above and beyond to help others. As this year’s grand prize winner, Moras won a trip for four to Disney World, along with $500 spending money in the form of Visa gift cards.
