Carrie Kendell is 17 years old. As Kendall explains, "I'm just a girl who wants to make a difference for other kids. I first became aware of the African AIDS epidemic and the orphaned children when watching an Oprah Winfrey special in December, 2003. I couldn't believe that there were so many children living alone. I couldn't believe that when their parents died there was nowhere for the kids to go! Kids, I realized, were caring for kids! I knew then that I wanted to do something to help." Kendall knows firsthand how fragile and challenging life can be and how important love and care are. Kendall does not want attention for herself and her trials, but wants people to focus on what millions of kids in Africa are going through who donít have the benefit of a loving family, supportive friends, and superior medical care. www.kidscaring4kids.org
