Blog entry 9 Year Old Feeds 2,800 Kids in Pakistan
Emilie is 9 years old. Last year, after watching on television families in Pakistan living in tents following the devastating floods, Emilie decided to take action to help the families.
“I decided to sell lemonade and give the money to the World Food Programme so that they could use it to help people,” says Emilie. She raised enough to feed 2,800 children in Pakistan.
"If everybody did just a little thing," Emilie says, "I know it would make a big, big difference." It is a belief that many Freericer players relate to and practice every day!

I,M from Pakistan . thank,s Emilie for helping my country people :) u r gr8

Go on Emilie, do it! I'm 10 and I never would have come up with such an idea in 1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 years!
That is so sweet! I can name SO many people who would either 1) drink all the lemonade or 2) keep the money and not think twice about other people who definatley NEED that money. You go, Emilie!
Wow!! This is AMAZING!! I am also only nine years old, and it is hard to think of a fellow nine-year-old doing such a affectionate thing!!
i remember about an essay i wrote in 5th grade about community service, and the main point of it was 'small things add up'. What she says is so true :D
Emilie!! U r awsome!! How did you do that? I cant so that. And with lemonade? WOW!!!
I'm a hard-to-impress 14 year old, but congratulations! What a very kind thing for a little kid to do! I wish I had the awesomeness that you have Emilie! Keep on going to help the world!!!!!
I could never do anything like that!!
go emilie go you go you I think thats is good for the young one like that to help like that it is just so sweet.
omg i am 11 and i would not be able to do that
im nine thank god for emile!
Im only 9 Years Old just like Emilie.What a great thing she has done.
Just remember, if everyone around the world did what Emilie has done, together we could end world hunger. Be inspired!
Amazing i am only 10! thats would take a while!
If a nine year old can do it then I can.
What a wonderful girl! It's important that all the people act like she, so that we can make a really big difference.
Go on, lovely girl!
i am 10 and taking algebra
It's people like you that make the world a better place. Well done kid :) Keep up to amazing work.

awesome! go Emilie! :]]
A lot brilliant....!! :D
im 8 soon to be 9 and I WILL TRY TO DO AS HER!
VERY PROUD OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO DECIDE TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE LESS FORTUNATE TO YOURSELF! GOD BLESS YOU! =]
this maybe a good, awesome hunger feeder, but she does something amazing, all we do is sit here and watch here help. Lets all do something, lemonade stand, donate your own food or money
ALL KIDS (maybe adults), WE CAN MAKE A DIFFRENCE, LEARN LATER< AND GIVE YOUR FOOD AND MONEY TODAY. I HAVE A DREAM, that one day, no one will go hunger. i had a dream, lots of brothers and sisters an neighbors, helping hunger people all over the world. We should make this dream come true
you are awsome Emilie!!! :D
Brilliant. Absolutely Brilliant. I can't imagine the impact if several nine year olds did that. Let's just face it, when you hear little girls talk, you want to do what they say. So if lots of children got together, the impact would be phenomenal. 10 times what Emilie had, that's for sure.
GO EMILIE! I bet you'll be a GREAT actress someday. Keep up your dreams an you just might get them, and on the way, I think you'll help a bunch of people!
wow....a 9 year old girl..................if we all did that, no one would go to sleep hungry.......
Gives Me Hope
great job how long did it take for you to feed that many people. Im nine year old too, and i'm cathing up with you :)
Awesome! Keep it up!
Wow! I'm almost 13, and I want to be like you!!! You are such an inspiration. I just joined up to freerice but I want to feed as many as I can!
Nice job! Keep up the good work!
Wow!THX emily any ppl know where is safe to donate to poor ppl?
Thank you Emile
it's amazing to think a young girl could feed so many people.
Wow! If only other people would do their own little part, the world would be a much happier place.
