DECATUR -- A 4th grader couldn't ignore the sadness in a magazine article, so he's doing something about it. Simeon Risby is our Kid to Know. He goes to Dennis School.

It was a story about conditions in Ethiopia which made him want to help. The article said Ethiopians only make $2/day; not even enough to buy a bed.

Simeon decided to raise money to send across the world. His goal was $200. He ended up raising $240 with the help of his family and church.

Simeon is also supporting another charity; Project Read. He couldn't understand there are adults who can't read, so he wants to change that.
