Jonah Larson featured in Allowance ad
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – A young La Crosse celebrity teams up with Hillshire Farm SNACKED! to give children the tools they need to bring about change in their communities.
Jonah Larson helps promote allowances.
Children in grades 4-6 can apply for grants to support their community or school projects.
There are 38 scholarships of $500 and three scholarships of $2,000 to be won.
Larson used his success as a popular crochet prodigy to do charity work in Ethiopia, in the village where he was born.
Through fundraising, Larson has built a library and science lab for the students in the village so far and is currently fundraising to get bathrooms for the students.
According to Larson, there are 2,000 students at the school who all use a dilapidated outhouse.
Jonah says he wants to help spread awareness about the stipend grant program to help other kids do great things.
“Other kids can see it because I have a lot of kids on my Instagram who love the items I make, and I want them to be able to share their ideas with the world and help others too,” he said. Larson said.
If you have kids with big ideas for community service, you can find more information about grants and applying here.
