Zach Bonner started raising money for homeless children when he was just seven years old.
In 2005 Zach founded the Little Red Wagon Project to help children in the U.S. and abroad in distressed situations. Following Hurricane Charley, Zach went door to door with his red wagon and collected food and water for those impacted by the storm. His efforts eventually filled 27 semi trucks with food and supplies. In his words “I believe God has a purpose for everyone, and this is the purpose for my life.”
In 2007, Bonner began his three-stage "My House to the White House" project. The project's purpose was to raise money and awareness for homeless children. In 2007, he walked 280 miles from Tampa to Tallahassee, Florida, while in 2008, he covered 250 miles from Tallahassee to Atlanta, Georgia. In the final leg of the trip, he walked 668 miles from Georgia to Washington D.C. Upon the completion of the "My House to the White House" project, Bonner planned another project, March Across America. From March 23 to September 14, 2010, he walked 2,448 miles from Tampa to Los Angeles.
Zach’s story was turned into a movie last year titled “Little Red Wagon.” He serves as an inspirational example of how one person can make a difference and impact the world. You are never too young or too old to serve God and minister to a hurting world. Thank you Zach for showing us how it’s done!
