Sudbury, Ontario (CBC News) June 14, 2017
Will Kilbride, a Sudbury teenager, is using his entrepreneurial skills to help raise money for the local hospice.
The 13-year-old Carl Nesbitt Public School student was given an assignment to create a business.
He developed Soaps for Sudbury, and decided to donate the proceeds to the hospice.
“I thought soaps and scrubs were becoming popular,” Will said. “So it would be a good idea to make them.”
So far, Will’s soaps have made around $1500. He’s hoping to raise over $2000.
Will’s father, Jason, says it’s a proud moment.
“You know, sometimes as a parent, you wonder how you’re doing because it’s a very difficult job sometimes,” he said. “And it’s moments like that that sort of give you the idea that maybe at some point, you’re doing something right.”
