At just 8 years old, Madison Wilson has created an inspiring non-profit organization to promote inclusion in education, called Madi's Treasure Box. After Madi had trouble finding art supplies that matched her skin tone at school, she decided she wanted to make a difference not just for herself, but for other children, too.

Madi started a GoFundMe to raise money to buy multicultural art supplies and donate them to schools, which eventually grew into the successful organization it is today providing a range of materials to promote representation in the classroom. We're in awe of little Madi and all she has accomplished in life already — it's no wonder she was selected as GoFundMe's Kid Hero Of The Month!

You can donate to Madi's Treasure Box here.
