This 11-Year-Old Is Such An Inspiration

Khloe Thompson is always finding ways to positively impact her community and society at large. The youngster’s latest efforts involve a children’s story in which the main character is just like Khloe.

Marisol’s Helping Hand revolves around the heroine, Marisol, who goes to great lengths to assist those who are less fortunate than herself. In the story, Marisol and her cousin, Nina, are so moved by the homeless epidemic impacting their city that they search for ways to help those living outdoors. The girls get a few tips from their friend, Khloe, who also desires to uplift the homeless.


Khloe’s book is much like her real-life efforts to help those in need. It was just a few weeks ago that Khloe held a “Cuts In The Park” event at Saint Julian Park in the Skid Row district of downtown Los Angeles. Dozens of impoverished individuals were given the royal treatment as the tween and her team gave everything from haircuts to manicures.

“I want to inspire other kids to be great and to make their mark on this earth,” Khloe says on her charity’s website. “[My vision is] to make the world a better place, by showing ALL of my neighbors that they are loved and cared for, no matter what their situation is.”

The youngster is certainly fulfilling her life’s goals and now, with her new book courtesy of a partnership with Callaloo, Khloe has the potential to reach even more people in need. You can get your copy of Marisol’s Helping Hand on iBooks for $1.99. Watch the digital version on Callaloo TV. Fifty percent of proceeds from book sales will go towards Khloe’s upcoming trip to Ghana in which she plans to continue the fight to give her peers the basic necessities that she enjoys.
