All children should be encouraged to realize their potential and believe in their talents. Best friends Caitlyn, 7, and Amelia, 6, found theirs by creating a business which donates proceeds to Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Toronto.

Caitlyn and Amelia created Soapy Surprises, a homemade soap bar with a kid’s toy in the middle. They recently visited the House to deliver a $600 donation.

The girls started the business in an empowerment program called Girl. Strong. run by Caitlyn’s mom, Yollanda Zhang.

“I created Girl. Strong. in honour of my grandma. She encouraged and inspired me to go after opportunities she never had, so I want to help give this to other young girls,” says Yollanda. 

Yollanda says Caitlyn and Amelia have been motivated by the fact they are helping other kids.

“The girls want to help other kids and now they’ve seen how their donation is helping families at RMHC Toronto,” says Yollanda. 

RMHC Toronto is grateful for donors of all ages like Caitlyn and Amelia who help us keep families together.
