Meet the eight-year-old schoolgirl who collected over 700 socks for the homeless and was awarded for her charity work

CHARITABLE: Miracle Omar

MEET EIGHT-YEAR-OLD Miracle Omar, a schoolgirl from Maryland, who has recently been awarded for her charitable work with the homeless.

Miracle’s Sox in the Box project helped put more than 700 pairs of socks on the feet of the homeless in the Washington, D.C., area.

Her reason?

“Because their feet are getting cold,” she told WRC. “And cold feet, you don’t like that.”

She was recognised for her charitable work by the Prince George’s Chamber of Commerce and she plans to continue to help others less fortunate.

“I really want other kids to see what I’m doing and then they can stand up and be like, I can do that too,” she told WRC.
