Hannah Taylor is a schoolgirl form Manitoba, Canada.One day, when she was five years old, she was walking with her mother in downtown Winnipeg. They saw a man 1 out of a garbage can. She asked hermother why he did that and her mother said that the man was homeless and hungry. Hannah was very 2 .She couldn't understand why some people had to live their lives without shelter or enough food. Hannah started to think about how she could 3 , but, of course, there is not a lot one five-year-old can do to solve(解决)the problem of homelessness.
Later, when Hannah attended school, she saw another homeless person. It was a woman, 4 an old shopping trolley(购物车) which was piled with 5 . It seemed that everything the woman owned was in them. This made Hannah very sad, and even more 6 to do something. She had been talking to her mother about the lives of homeless people 7 they first saw the homeless man. Her mother told her that if she did something to change the problem that made her sad, she wouldn’t 8 as bad.
Hannah began to speak out about the homelessness in Manitoba and then in other provinces. She hoped to 9 her message of hope and awareness. She started the Ladybug Foudation ,an organization aiming at getting rid of homelessness. She began to 10 “Big Bosses” lunches, where she would try to persuade local business Leaders to 11 to the cause. She also organized a fundraising(募捐) drive in “Ladybug Jars” to collect everyone's spare change during “Make Change” month. More recently, the foundation began another 12 called National Red Scarf Day-a day when people donate $20 and wear red scarves in support of Canada's 13 and homeless.
There is an emergency shelter in Winnipegcalled “Hannah's Place”, something that Hannah is very 14 of. Hannah's Place is divided into several areas, providing shelter for people when it is socold that 15 outdoors can mean death. In the more than five years since Hannah began her activities, she has received a lot of 16 . For example, she received the 2007 BRICK Award recognizing the 17 of young people to change the world. But 18 all this, Hannah still has the 19 life of a Winnipeg schoolgirl, except thatshe pays regular visits to homeless people.
Hannah is one of many examples of young people who are making a 20 in the world. You can,too!
