Duck Dynasty‘s sweetheart, Sadie Robertson has been showcasing how big her heart his since we met her on the first season of the popular series. The 21-year-old has found a voice preaching the word of God, meanwhile maintaining a close-knit relationship with her family, friends, and boyfriend. While her preaching has touched the hearts of young adults across the nation, her latest achievement went far beyond America.
Sadie has held a strong faith since she was young but her recent calling has pulled her to begin preaching the word of God to others. In 2014, she wrote her first New York Times bestseller book, Live Original which was inspired by her faith and Christian values. The book title soon became Robertson’s motto in life, as her father, Willie, raised her to not conform to the ways of the world.
She has since gone on to tour across the country, stopping at churches and universities with a message in her heart. Her upbeat spirit and attitude has brought light to even the darkest of places, so much so that she just managed to help raise over 30,000 meals for children in Africa.
Sadie has gone on multiple mission trips in third-world countries including Guatemala, Haiti, and Somalia. She has built strong relationships with members of the communities as well as became a mentor and leader for the young children.
Her main goal is in hopes to reach #ZeroHunger for these countries as she works together with ShareTheMeal to feed hungry children.
Just a couple hours before Easter (April 21), Sadie announced that over 30,000 meals had been shared. She reached out to her followers in hopes that they could make it 40,000 meals before Easter Sunday. It was all through the incredible help of ShareTheMeal and citizens across the world with smartphones.
The way the charity app works is that it allows you to feed a child with just a tap on your screen. For just $0.50, you can feed a child for one day. According to their site, “there are 20 times as many smartphone users as hungry children.” That means, if we can all make this small donation, we could save several humans from starvation.
It’s a truly beautiful way to give back and luckily, Sadie is using her spirit, voice, and heart to help.
