Ten-year-old Cody Jackson, a 2013 Build-A-Bear Workshop Huggable Hero, helps support the soldiers.
November 11 is a day to honor people who have served in the army. That is what Cody Jackson, 10, from Alpharetta, Georgia, does all the year round. Cody visits airports to greet soldiers and has sent nearly 5,000 pounds of care packages to the soldiers. He has also written books to teach kids to love their country, and sells the books on his website, 1boyuso. com, to pay for his package supplies.
For all his work, Cody was selected as a 2013 Build-A-Bear Workshop Huggable Hero. The 10 Huggable Heroes chosen each received $10,000.
“When I was four years old, I was at the airport and it was taking so long to get through the airport. I asked my mom and dad why it was taking us so long and they told me about 9/11 and what the soldiers did that day. They explained the soldiers were providing extra protection to help keep us safe. That is when I started to thank the soldiers,” Cody said. “Sending them care packages makes me feel good. I hope the packages make the soldiers feel at home. I hope they show the soldiers that they are not forgotten.”
When asked how it felt to be chosen as a hero, Cody smiled, “It was really exciting and it felt really good that I won that money so I could send more packages to the soldiers and get more things.”
Cody also hopes more kids can send care packages to the soldiers and thank them for risking their lives. “If they want to help me or if they need some information, they can go to my website,” he added.
31. Cody became a Huggable Hero in 2013 for _____.
A. his best-selling book B. his caring behavior
C. his special website D. his brave act
