Syria is in the midst of a civil war and estimates show that nearly 12 million people are fleeing the country, half of those people are kids. Charlotte’s video shows her desire to help those people get the basics of human dignity: food, water, and shelter.

“When I think of myself cold, tired, being in need of something to eat, I would not enjoy being in that position,” Charlotte said. “I want to put out the message that even if you’re a little girl like me just 8 years old, you can make a big difference in the world.”

“You don’t have to be a politician, or a political figure, or someone with a lot of power or notoriety to make a difference,” Heather Tristan said. “You can be 8 year old girl with a camcorder.”
