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!

Emilie you sweet little girl!! You are amazing!! I am older than you and still probably couldn't do what you did!! Think of everyone you helped!! You are great and there really need to be more people like you in this world!!
that is really cool I am 11years old and I don't know if i cold ever do that
1: That's really inspiring
2: I wouldn't be able to do that in a LONG time
You r a gd person. Keep up ur work! Never fail to help people!
what a thoughtful 9 yr old girl helping my home country in need :')
A big up for Emilie. BRAVOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Amazing...I'm older and playing this site is probably the best I can do. It's nice to hear that there are people in the world that really wish to help others even if they don't know them. ^ ^
I feel ashamed of myself that I didn't do something like what Emilie did when I was 9.
Wow I can't believe you had enough to feed so many people!! Not even I could do that in a million years. I just found out about this website and I think it's the simplest way to donate and it's free while you get your education!!
wow amazzing good job i never thought that people would listen!
Awesome emilie carry up the good work
Wow! Emilie i'm older than you and I couldn't probably do that in my LIFETIME. You rock n' Roll!! It's totally inspiring, amazing. and incredible. Many children are living better lives now because of you... you should be proud. It's just stunning what you did.
I want to do the same thing but I don't know how.
Such a sweet, selfless young lady and an incredible human being! The world would be a much better place if there were more like Emilie. A role model for all of us. I wish her well.
this is really inspiring whoever raised this child did a spectactular job i don't think i could raise a child to be as nice and considerate as her.
Kids in action... as opposed to killed in action. hmm. try a different title
If a 9-year old feeding 2,800 people does not inspire you to help others..probably nothing will. Good Job Emilie!
if a 9 yr old can do that WE CAN 2! im only 12 but still..............
she is young helping SO many people that need freerice infact while were reading coments we really should be using freerice to help people in Pakistan
I think that little girl is so sweet! When I was 9 I probably wouldn't be able to feed 2,500 people. I probably still wouldn't be able to.
She is very inspiring.
wow such a little girl but she made such a diffrence that shows that any one can do it : )
amazing,awsome,inspiring,conffedent,beautifle little girl her parents are very lucky to have her as a daughter keep up the good work!!!
Wow, this is inspiring! Thank you to Emilie to being a great example!! I am definitely going to try and get something together like this with some of my friends :)
Wow, what a kind-hearted young girl. I wish more people would be like her. Now that warm weather is here, and I just moved, I will have my own stand at a yard sale we will be having. My friends and I will get all of our old, unwanted stuff, sell it, and give the money to the WFP. I've been planning this since winter, actually.
Very inspiring in so young a girl.
