Alexander Fultz

Pineville, North Carolina

Alexander Fultz, 12, of Pineville, N.C., a seventh-grader at Metrolina Regional Scholars Academy, has raised more than $10,000 since 2010 to provide gifts to young patients at a local children’s hospital, and recently focused his efforts on providing a gift for every baby in the NICU. Inspired to help sick kids after his brother was hospitalized as a baby, Alexander started his drive using his allowance money; today, he hosts fundraisers and a school collection, speaks with other kids to raise awareness of his mission and more.
