Teen Author Inspires Others to Make a Difference
Charlotte, NC- Thirteen-year-old Caroline Combs is out to prove that kids can truly make a difference in the world. She is a young author who uses the power of words to inspire other kids to take action. She spreads her message in her book, "The Eco Green Dog," the first in a series.
She got the idea when she was just 10 years old after seeing trash on the ground. After having a conversation with her parents, she decided to start writing down her ideas of how she could help the planet and before she knew it, she had a full story.
With the help of her friend and book illustrator, Allison Chenard, a Lake Norman High School freshman, they were able to bring the story to life.
Caroline says the story highlights three things: "Recycling, saving animals, and love... unconditional love."
She hopes the message resonates with kids across the country. "We can work together as a team," Caroline says, ".. we can make a difference."
A portion of the proceeds from the book sales go to ASPCA Humane Society. Her second book in the series is due out in Fall/Winter 2012.
