Elliot's Ninja Art: Helping the Homeless, One Ninja at a Time

One Ninja at a Time


My name is Elliot, the maker of Elliot's Ninja Art. I'm eight years old and I make art to help homeless people in my city. Each sale helps me to give needed items to people who are living in tents or on the street.

One day when I was riding in the car with my mom, I saw a homeless person and I felt bad. I asked my mom if I could give my money to the homeless person. She said that I could help in other ways. When I got home, I thought about how I could help.
I like to paint, and I love ninjas. I asked my mom about starting my own Etsy shop, and she said it could be a way to help.
The first weekend, I sold almost every one of my paintings.

Two months later, the editor of the Greensboro Voice saw my shop, bought a shirt, and sent a reporter to visit me. After the interview, the local news station here came to interview me.

I have visited a tent city in our town, where I met the people who I help. I am planning to visit the camp again in the next few weeks. It made me feel good to help.

The idea of being homeless horrifies me. I wish that there was no such thing as homelessness. If every one helped, homelessness would be gone. One Ninja At A Time.
