13-year-old Lilly Thompson didn’t always live in a comfortable Idaho home. That’s why she did something special for the kids who started out just like her—homeless.

Before her mother Lyndette passed away from stage four breast cancer when she was just 3, Lilly and her mom were living at Father Joe’s Village homeless shelter in San Diego.

The young orphan was then adopted by her daycare sitter and raised in Idaho without any knowledge of her homeless roots.

When Lilly eventually discovered her heritage, she knew she wanted to do something meaningful for the children who were growing up like she did, so she started a Go Fund Me page and raised $1,700 to buy gifts for the shelter.

Whenever women at Father Joe’s complete certain chores, they receive credit that they can use to get supplies and toiletries from the “Baby Bucks Store”. On December 23rd, the shelves of that store were overflowing with goodies thanks to Lilly’s donations.

We think Lilly picked up a little of that awesome-ness at a very early age.
