Today’s good news comes all the way from down under. Meet Campbell Whittaker.


Bumble, as everyone calls him, will positively restore your faith in humanity. While some kids prefer to play with their peers after school, the 12-year-old boy likes to sew for a charitable cause. “When I was 9, I asked mum and dad if we could buy Christmas presents for kids in hospital. When they told me it would cost too much, I decided to make them,” Bumble wrote on his project’s Facebook page.

He vowed to make one present a day and so far, in 2016, he has created 450 gifts that have gone to children in hospitals as well as terror survivals. Bumble uses his own pocket money to buy sewing supplies and fabrics but if you want to help him out, you can pitch in via PayPal and GoFundMe.


Yesterday, he announced that a print and imaging company has surprised him with a new sewing machine and an embroidering machine, which will enable him to make even cooler toys for kids. Bumble told Inside Edition that the most special toy he made was for his dad who got cancer that kept coming back after he went into remission. So he decided to make him a bear. Ever since he gave it to him, his illness hasn’t come back.
