With all of the challenges out there these days, this one is positive!

There’s an 11-year-old kid named Ruben Martinez in El Paso, Texas. In the wake of the domestic terrorist attack at the Walmart there on Saturday, he wanted to figure out a way to help heal the community.

He created the El Paso Challenge where he’s challenging everyone in El Paso to do 22 good deeds for each other. The number 22 is in honor of the 22 victims who were murdered.

Ruben is suggesting things like, “Mow someone’s lawn, visit a nursing home, pay for someone’s lunch or dinner, donate to families in need, write someone a letter and tell them how great they are, [or] hold the door for everyone.”

His mother says he came up with the idea after, “He was having some trouble dealing with what happened. I explained to him that we could not live in fear and that people in our community are caring and loving.”

What’s amazing is the fact an 11-year old kid thought of this without any help and he has this much good on his heart. You go Ruben!
