Aidan Nadell, an Upper Dublin High School senior, has started the Spread Smiles Movement to raise money for a “coronavirus-conscientious” playground at Chabad Garden School in Fort Washington, writes Jesse Bernstein for the Jewish Exponent.
Nadell began selling his apparel and accessories with smile designs hoping to raise $5,000 over 12 months. However, he has blown past his original goal and is now looking at other local organizations that could be the recipient for the next $5,000.
To start the movement, the seventeen-year-old combined the skills he learned through his extracurricular activities with Future Business Leaders of America, his volunteer work with Philly Friendship Circle, and his Chabad Garden School job.
The project will also prove useful once he moves on to Ursinus College to study business administration and entrepreneurship.
“This passion project of mine is kind of a pioneering project for me,” said Nadell, “I want to be able to take my love for kindness, love for perspective, love for making a difference in the places that shaped me, and be able to create businesses out of it.”
