James Foley’s last letter to family

Set on delivering a precious gift – water

carter jenkins

When he was just 15, Carter Jenkins called Pepsi, told them about his non-profit organisation, Students for Safe Water, and asked for a donation of US$20,000 (about S$24,800).

“If you show them you care, it’s really hard for organisations to say no to a 15-year-old,” says Carter, now 17, who founded the organisation when he was only 13.
