We have featured nearly 100 interviews with people making a difference around the globe. Our youngest guests are proof you don't have to a degree or years of experience to make a tremendous difference.  In fact, at just 11 years of age, our upcoming guests began making an impact upon thousands of hurting lives. 

Kenzie Hall is a military brat who works to identify what military kids need for the long-haul. Five years ago, at just 11 years-of-age she created "Brat Pack 11," while her father was deployed to Afghanistan. Her foundation's mission is to recognize "the children of military heroes nationwide by providing them with unforgettable experiences and connecting them with a network of continued support." Her Brat Pack 11 foundation is now operating under a national non-profit, "The Boot Campaign." The 501c3 supports veterans, and their families, through Housing, Jobs, Wellness, Education, Urgent Assistance, Family Support, and Honor and Gratitude Programs, such as Brat Pack 11. We're going to get an update from Kenzie Hall on her foundation while meeting with another dynamic young entrepreneur.

Kylie Simonds is an 11 year-old cancer survivor who battled rhabdomyosarcoma, a soft tissue cancer three years ago. Kylie was came up with an invention through her school and Connecticut Invention Convention. She went to work on using her cancer journey to bless other kids in the battle. Kylie designed a backpack that allows children some mobility while receiving I.V. treatments or infusions. Her campaign to raise the funds to bring her invention to market went viral, capturing the attention of CNN, Fox News, Huffington Post, among others. To-date she's raised more than 90% of her goal for the IV Pediatric Backpack.

Join us to meet these two extraordinary girls, each passionate for their cause and determined to make a world of difference!
