MEET THE COOLEST PANTRY KIDS 🤜🏼🤛🏾

These kids right here... packed 200 care pack bags to give to senior citizens in Rockville and Germantown today.

And our youngest helpers are that dynamic first grade trio (Caitlyn, Dallas & Cavanaugh) who have become close friends volunteering at the pantry! Plus they even met the mayor of Rockville today ❤️

If you have kids who want to help, email us at [email protected].

Please... please... PLEASE shop at Dawson’s Market in Rockville to help us get milk for the pantry!!! 🤜🏼🤛🏾 🥛

Please... please... PLEASE shop at Dawson’s Market in Rockville to help us get milk for the pantry!!! 🤜🏼🤛🏾 🥛

We have two great opportunities to help our fellow neighbors. Buy one give one - support a great cause started by an amazing kid from Cool & Dope. Buy a milk to donate and we will match one for every 10 donated. Secondly, buy a bag of preselected pantry items that we have discounted by 20% for Sheppards Table. With both options we will track the purchases and arrange for pickup by the organizations.

Hey guys!! Guess what?!...

These pictures were taken on March 14, when I made my very first care packs for senior citizens in need during the pandemic.

And, since then and because of YOUR support, we’ve helped over 5,000 people TOGETHER.

But, earlier this week I heard from a lady that there were HUNDREDS of senior citizens in my area in dire need. A lot of them don’t have the food they need or a way to even get to the store.

Hearing their stories makes me really sad, but I’m so blessed to be able to help them!

So this weekend is going to be all about helping our most valued residents. They’re our moms, our dads, our grandpas, our grandmas, even our great grandparents! That’s why on Saturday I’m delivering 240 care packs throughout Montgomery County MD to seniors at several different living facilities.

I know I have a lot of work to do Friday and Saturday to prepare, but it makes me feel SO beautiful inside to help!

On top of that, we’re so so SO excited to be serving at our new location! 🙌🏽🙌🏾🙌🏼 I’m so thankful too for my Coach Joel for giving me a space to start my pantry and grow it even bigger now.

Stay Cool. Be Dope 😎🤜🏼🤛🏾✌🏽 #motivation #inspiration #givingback #covid19 #nonprofit #seniorcitizen

WHAT A CRAZY COOL SURPRISE!!

Today 10 detectives from the 6th District came to the Community Pantry and at first I was really scared. I had never seen that many police cars before with their lights flashing. But, when they got out of their cars they were so excited to see me AND they had a bunch of cereal and ramen noodles to donate which we really really needed!!

On top of that the Police Chief gave me a Certification of Appreciation for all the people we’ve helped so far!!

AND I got to ride in the front seat of the police car (just in the parking lot — but still it was fun!)

When I grow up I want to be a police officer because I want to protect my community. And I know that there are so many police officers out there helping out our community and doing their job to keep people safe.

Today was a super cool day!!

LET’S HELP EVEN MORE! (don’t cry...)

I had a blast last night bringing stuff to Charlie (Kids Who Kare) in NJ to help 100 people in his community.

Then me and my mom headed home. Her phone went off and we got this message...

It makes me so sad that there are so many people in need. That’s why the 2020 COVID Games are so important for the pantry to keep raising money to help families like this one AND senior citizens.

So you can help me by doing 2 things...

1) Start a grocery drive in your neighborhood to help those in need. If you’re local to Gaithersburg, we’d love to receive your grocery donations. (Pasta/pasta sauce and cereal are gold!)

2) Register for the 2020 COVID Games that start today at 8pm EST... it’s a virtual fundraiser of CoronOLYMPICS proportions — great for all ages!

➡️ Register at bit.ly/2020CovidGames

AND guys... next weekend... I have a new goal... I want to help 1,500 people!! We can do it ❤️🤜🏼🤛🏾

PANTRY ROAD TRIP!

📦 PANTRY SUPPLY DROP 🚘

Even though the pantry is closed this weekend so we can move into our bigger space, me and my mom are loading up a van full of stuff to take to a pantry in need a few hours away.

They want to help 100 families next week and they’re running low on supplies. So instead of shipping everything, we’re driving it straight to them 💪🏼

Don’t worry, we’ll stay safe!

Psst... (Cavanaugh doesn’t know he has a big surprise coming in a few hours... can you guess what it is?) 🤫

IMPORTANT PANTRY UPDATE 🙂

Guys, we've cracked 5,000 people served and I just want to say a big THANK YOU to everyone that has helped by volunteering, donating items, donating money, delivering for us, or just by sending good vibes!

So, far, we've CRUSHED every goal we set – and because we're #InThisTogether, we got an even BIGGER space donated for the pantry. I was so happy yesterday when they told me we could use their space to help more people I almost cried.

So, the pantry is closed this weekend so we can move everything and gear up for a HUGE care pack distribution on May 30th and May 31st.

In the meantime, can you do 2 things for me? Well... technically 3... they'll only take 5 minutes!

1.) Register for the 2020 COVID Games (it's a cool virtual CoronOLYMPICS style fundraiser to help the pantry). Check it out at bit.ly/2020CovidGames.

2.) Watch this video – to see what we’ve been up to in the pantry... AND...

3.) Stay cool and be extra dope ❤ (D.ish O.ut P.ositive E.nergy)

THIS IS HOW WE DO IT AT THE PANTRY

WHAT AN EPIC MOTHER’S DAY WEEKEND!!!

Guys, guess what?! 🥁

I started with my grandma... now we’re here!

And the LOVE is Greater Than COVID-19 Community Pantry has grown SO much!!!

We helped 288 households in ONE weekend. That’s 1,463 people! 🤜🏼🤛🏾

Including taking care packs to 40 senior citizens 👴🏼👵🏻🧓🏾who had no access to the grocery store.

That takes our grand total to 810 households (or 3,756 people) 💪🏽🙌🏼❤️ in just 6 weekends!

📹 see our process in the video 📹

I couldn’t have done this for Mother’s Day without the incredible donations and support from Mamma Lucia Restaurants, Outback Steakhouse, Lilly Magilly's Cupcakery, Peter's Carryout, South Mountain Creamery, Giuseppi's Pizza Plus, Butler's Orchard, Gaithersburg Florist, Guernsey, Inc., and the amazing H&S Bakery!!!

And special thanks to all of the incredible kid and adult volunteers that helped us. Plus I got to meet another cool 7-year-old named Caitlyn who helped her mom deliver care packs for our pantry!! 🚘

But this weekend, I have a new goal! I want to help another 1,000+ people to get over 5,000 people served.

I know we can do it together and...

You can help us stock the pantry for another big weekend 🤗

If you’re local and able to donate...

➡️ cereal
➡️ pasta and pasta sauce
➡️ ramen
➡️ peanut butter
➡️ canned soup
➡️ granola bars

We’re happy to come pick them up on Friday!!

Or you can donate to our gofundme at gofundme.com/covid19communitypantry 🙏🏽

I’m so exhausted!! But thank you, thank you, thank you to EVERYONE who came last week and this week to volunteer and who helped us deliver care packs!!!

Guess what we’re at now..?!?!?!?

Today alone we helped 105 families... (or when you take their family size into account)... 417 people just TODAY!!

That takes our total (so far) to 1,995 people! So tomorrow we will break the 2,000 mark ❤️❤️❤️ and that’s in just 5 weekends!!

Another busy pantry day tomorrow too!! But, I set a new, new goal for Mother’s Day weekend...

“I want to help 1,000 people in one weekend.”

I know we can do it!!!

If you’re in need or you know someone in need, then request a care pack: bit.ly/pantryrequest

HAPPY MAY 1st 🥳

???WANNA PLAY A GAME???

Me and my mom play a game to see how much we can challenge each other to think BIG and to DREAM of the impossible.

I’ll show you how to play in a sec!

It’s super easy and is the reason why I always work to level up all the time. Because the more you believe you can and the more you hang out with people who believe in themselves too... the more WE ALL CAN ACHIEVE!

See being positive is super contagious... and so is negativity... so watch out!

The first step to getting your mind right starts with getting your environment right!!

So... back to the game...

How can you use a paper clip? Think outside the 📦 drop your idea below!!

I’ll go first and let’s see how much we can stretch each other to be creative 🤜🏼🤛🏾

MAY HERE WE COME!!!!

What a crazy and inspiring April!?!

Together we helped over 1,500 people with the Community Pantry.

But, earlier this month, I was talking to my mom about how I was afraid of my grandma getting sick. And I know I do a lot to keep senior citizens, like her, safe but I still worry about her, her friends, and the whole 🌎 right now.

But, my mom always reminds me about the power of my own thoughts... and how whatever I believe is what I achieve.

Now... I know that this is a strange and scary time for us all but I ALSO know that it’s the BEST time to learn and get our minds focused on our goals.

(my life goal by the way is ending all bullying worldwide by 2030)

So through the whole month of May which is Mental Health Awareness month, I’m going to share my ✨”Positivity Sparks” ✨ (ways to keep your shine on is what I call them). Try them out everyday and share them with the people who are important to you.

That way WE can make sure WE keep building our unstoppable Cool & Dope Mind - no matter what comes our way!

Deal?

Drop a ☀️ in the comments so I know that nothing can get you off your Positivity game. Or... drop a BIG 🌈 if you’re ready to level up your impact starting NOW!!!!!

I know I am 🤜🏼🤛🏾

Making Positivity a Thing!

Hi Guys!

My name is Cavanaugh and I’m 7 years old. When I’m not playing basketball or lacrosse, I LOVE giving back to the community.

Here is how it all started...

The Summer of Help | Flint, Michigan My first official campaign was in the Summer of 2018, when I helped my mom raise almost $5,000 to buy a semi-truck of water for Flint, Michigan. I made quick videos to help bring awareness to the contaminated water that residents in Flint have been forced to live with. It made me sad to know that they didn’t have what they needed to survive and I was determined to help any way I could.

^^That’s the semi-truck that held almost 1,500 cases of water for elderly residents at 800 East Court Street in Flint, Michigan. It took my mom and cousins almost 12 hours to deliver all of the water!

The residents were so happy and thankful that a group of people from Maryland drove to Flint to help them, when almost everyone has forgotten.

We also got over 20 bags of donations for Cummings Great Expectations in Flint too! We took them children’s clothes, shoes, snacks, diapers, wipes, cleaning supplies, even water!

My mom sent me tons of pictures and it felt amazing to be able to know that I could help make things a little better for Flint.

The more I saw my mom helping others, the more I knew I needed to find ways to give back too.

And, that’s exactly what I did!

Because with my next birthday coming up I wanted to make giving back my mission.

Spreading the Birthday Love | Gaithersburg, MD

One day when I was driving to work with my mom, I saw a homeless man on the street asking for money. I asked my mom why he was homeless and she let me give him a dollar to help him. Then I saw a homeless man in a shopping center near my home and he played a guitar. I would stand and listen to him play and I felt sad that he didn’t have a home to live in like I did. When I would get money from my mom, I would give it back to her and ask her to give it to the man with the guitar.

That’s when I had a great idea to help even more people in my community.

So, for my 6th birthday in November 2018, I told my mom I didn’t want any gifts and wanted to make care packs for the homeless instead. So, I went back to social media and made videos to ask people for $6 for my birthday.

And, in a little over a week, I raised $634. I even got hundreds of dollars of donations from complete strangers who didn’t know me, but who wanted to help!

I was so happy and blessed to be able to make 57 care packs – full of things that the homeless need! And, I spent most of my Thanksgiving Day (it was super cold!) handing out the care packs to the homeless in my community. I got hugs from people and lots of high fives for being out there spreading love and positivity on Thanksgiving, that I told my mom I wanted to keep giving back.

And, that’s exactly what I did...

Holiday Love for the Homeless | Atlanta, GA

So, for Christmas, I told my mom again that I didn’t want to have present because I really didn’t need anything.

My mom showed me a video about Hope Thru Soap who help the homeless by giving them shower and food. That’s when I knew I wanted to raise money to help them and get the homeless in Atlanta the clothes they needed for the winter.

I made a few videos and even called my family and friends to ask them to donate $5 for Hope to help the homeless.

And, everyone came through big for me again!

I was able to get $325 for Hope Thru Soap – I was SO excited!

My mom and I drove down to Atlanta, it was a long drive, but I was able to meet Jason and give him the money I raised.

They had a block party to feed the homeless and played music for them to dance and know that they had people that cared about them. I even danced with them too and got to meet the Harlem Globetrotters.

For me, being able to make a goal and achieve it, made me want to do even more for the community and the world.

And, that is how C.O.O.L. & D.O.P.E. was started!

So, I invite you to join the Cool & Dope movement and help me make positivity a thing!

And check out what we, together, accomplished in 2019... BUT FIRST...

I may have started Cool & Dope but we’re a big world-changing family and I couldn’t have accomplished most of my goals this year without your help 🙌🏽

Over the past year, WE did A LOT and have even more work to do in 2020!

Here’s just a glimpse of what we accomplished in 2019!

🙌🏽 Made over 275 handmade cards (from all over the country + Germany) for the sick kids at The Children's Inn at NIH.

🙌🏽 Got February 21st dedicated in the City of Gaithersburg, MD as Bullying Awareness Day in honor of Gabriel Taye. Shout to my favorite guy... Mayor Ashman and the City of Gaithersburg Government 🤜🏻🤛🏾

🙌🏽 We travelled to Capitol Hill and spread the love on Valentine’s Day 💝 because you know politics has so much hostility, they can't get enough positivity. It was SO dope to meet Congressman David Trone, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, Congressman Joe Neguse, Rep Jahana Hayes, and Rep. Lauren Underwood. PLUS, Cool & Dope received a Congressional Certificate of Recognition for our Bullying Prevention work!

🙌🏽 We interviewed bullying experts to raise awareness about what we all can do to keep each other safe AND we hosted a virtual bullying awareness vigil.

🙌🏽 We took 225 “We’re Cool” bags to local schools to let bullying victims know that they’re not alone. Much ❤️ for Literati for their generous donation of books and kindness coins AND Pop it Pal for the amazing pimple poppers too!!!

🙌🏽 We adopted a road to make sure we do our part in keeping the Earth clean. Check us out along Dufief Mill Rd in Gaithersburg, MD.

🙌🏽 We distributed over 200 smile bags to seniors at Asbury Methodist Visit... just in time for St. Patrick’s Day ☘️ special thanks to Love For The Elderly for making this possible!

🙌🏽 We volunteered every day in April to give back even more to the community. That’s over 80 hours in April alone and a lot of great work done for Comfort Cases, Nourish Now, and Rockville Cemetery - just to shout out a few!

🙌🏽 We went to the Annapolis State House to share our bullying survey findings with State Delegate Julie Palakovich Carr AND we spent the day with State Sen. Cheryl C. Kagan. AND we were SO honored to receive a State Citation from the Senator for our work in the community on bullying prevention.

🙌🏽 We hosted the first-ever Senior Citizens Prom in Gaithersburg and had a blast with the dope seniors at The Hillside Senior Apartment Homes. We couldn’t have done it without donations from Silver Diner, Nothing Bundt Cakes and All In One Events ❤️

🙌🏽 We sent 30 underprivileged kids to see their first play at The Kennedy Center. Big THANKS to our anonymous donor who blessed us with a $500 donation to make this possible!

🙌🏽 We travelled all the way to New Jersey to give a HUGE TEDxYouth Talk about the power of tapping into our world changing M.A.G.I.C.

🙌🏽 We got October officially recognized by Montgomery County as Bullying Prevention Month. Thank you Councilmember Will Jawando ❤️

AND a bunch of other smaller campaigns to share love and support to a host of nonprofits across the country that are doing big things for our world 🌎

PLUS... Cool & Dope was featured 6 times throughout the year on every major news network in the DC/MD/VA!

But this is just the beginning guys. I need your help in 2020 to inspire at least 10,000 kids, like me, to pledge to volunteer at least 2 hours a month in their city. I know together we can do it.

I love you guys!

Peace,

Saw you on Little Big Shots! Love your heart and fight against bullying!!!! I am an educator and pray more children can be as strong as you and let us know when they are being bullied. God bless!
I'm SO proud of you for taking up this cause!! I'm also an anti-bully advocate. I'm against abuse of any kind towards anyone or anything! My prayers are with you, Violet
Proud of you, young man! I’ll be looking for your name on the ballot for president in 2048! Keep doing what you’re doing and hopefully people will follow suit! Way to go!
My 4 yr. old daughter and I just watched you on Little Big Shots-you did such a wonderful job! We will see you at your rally in October. 😁
I hope you have a video from your FOX 5 interview this morning. I would love to share it with my friends. I looked on their website and they didn't have it uploaded. Your mom should be extremely proud of you! You will be making a difference!!!
YOU are a ROCKSTAR ❤️❤️❤️❤️ Thank you so much for being you ❤️❤️❤️❤️
We stand with you 🧡🧡🧡 #bullyingendswithus
