Summer Linn may only be just 8-years-old but the Texas native is already making huge strides in the world, by stepping up and helping those who often feel left out in the world – foster children.

Choosing to forgo her Thanksgiving holiday – that is usually spent at home – Summer Linn chose instead to set up shop in her local shopping center at Pearland, Texas and began selling cupcakes to help raise much-needed funds.

Summer Linn is making huge strides in the field of philanthropy.

“I wanted to help so I thought about making cupcakes. I get to buy gifts with them for the foster kids.”

Having raised more than $2,000, she sells each box at $5, with the help of her mom, Max Ryder, who was also a foster kid in her youth.

Summer Linn spends her Thanksgiving spreading love to one foster kid at a time.

Acknowledging that it may be hard for Santa to reach some of the foster kids, Summer Linn says, “(Santa) He is very busy. And the foster kids get moved a lot.”

“They are special no matter what anyone says or does. Seriously. They deserve a good Christmas. They need a good home.”

Having adopted 13 kids for her Christmas gift run, Summer Linn understands the pain foster children go though and that it is a fact that many families do not understand.

“I know Santa is busy, and foster kids gets moved a lot.”

Her mother Max Ryder says, “Thanksgiving and Christmas. It is supposed to be a time with family. This is where foster kids feel unwanted and unloved, because you are a foster kid.”

Let’s hope that more kids like Summer Linn, will take up the mantle and share the happiness and love that all children deserve during the holidays.
