Lizzie Allison

Birthday: September 1

Birthday Fun Fact: I was born on Labor Day, so my mom was in "labor" on "Labor" Day.

Why I empower youth? 

I believe that if kids are taught to serve and volunteer from a young age, they will grow up to be world changers!

Why I celebrate foster kids?

Foster kids live in a cycle of failure and oppression. It's not their fault they are in this system, but they are the ones being punished. Nobody talks about them. Foster care is never in the news. Foster kids never have the opportunity to speak out. I believe it is my mission in life to speak because they can't. I want to spread foster care awareness and encourage others to help these innocent kids, through a fun and simple project like making a birthday box.


Bio:  Lizzie's desire to help foster youth stemmed from performing at age 8 in the musical Annie. Since then, she has always wanted to help foster kids, but because of her young age, she couldn’t find a way to help until now. At 15 years old, Lizzie started her own nonprofit where kids like her and other volunteers can help foster kids.
