Orphans and Doritos

 

While munching on some Doritos recently I noticed the back of the bag.  There was a recognition for “those who do something”, so I read about the winner and learned how….well….here’s what was written on the bag:

Maggie Doyne, Age 22, from New Jersey

“The summer after graduating from high school, Maggie went backpacking in Asia. She was so moved by the many orphans she met in Nepal, she decided not to return home. She used her savings to buy an acre of land, build a children’s home and dedicate her life to caring for orphans. She currently cares for 24 kids and has helped find families for over 700 more. Her next plan: build them a school.”
