10-Yr-Old Saw Mom Crying After Dallas Shooting, Starts ‘Bracelet Movement’ That’s Impacting People Around Globe.

10-year-old Leah Nelson is determined to make the world a better place, one bracelet at a time. She enjoys creating Rainbow Loom bracelets out of rubber bands, but she recently turned her hobby into something much bigger: a program she’s calling Becuz I Care.


Becuz I Care encourages people to do kind things for one another. You start with one of Leah’s bracelets, then you do a kind deed for someone and pass the bracelet to them, instructing them to do the same… The idea is to keep the acts of kindness going, to spread a little joy.

Leah was inspired to start Becuz I Care after the shooting in Dallas earlier this month. As her mom struggled through tears to explain the tragedy, the 10 year old came to one conclusion: the world needs more kindness.


After that night, Leah’s parents started social media accounts for Becuz I Care, including a Facebook page on which Leah shares updates about her work, teaches others how to make the bracelets so that they can join the movement, and responds to questions and orders for bracelets. Her story has taken off, and Leah ended up shipping a thousand bracelets in a month to people looking to join her in her mission.


Last week, Leah uploaded the above picture to Facebook with this caption: “5 million views on Facebook, requests for bracelets throughout the globe. I had to call in for a little more help!”

Way to go, Leah! Share this little girl’s awesome story today.
