Boy Plans Shoe Drive for Haiti Quake Victims

Pint-sized philanthropist Noah Mack may be small in stature, but he makes up for it with a big heart.

The North Carolina third grader single-handedly started a shoe drive at his school to collect footwear for earthquake victims in Haiti.

After seeing the devastation on TV and hearing a sermon from his pastor, Noah decided to help the best way he knows how.

"Help them because they don't have shoes over there. And the ground is rock and sand. They need shoes," he said. "Then I talked to the principal. Then she said, 'What's my goal?', and I told her it was 500."

Noah has since passed that goal. So far, more than 2,000 pairs of shoes have been collected.

"We had four trucks and three car loads full of shoes and sneakers. Brand new sneakers," said Noah's mother Cherry Siler-Mack.

With the help of their principal, Noah and his classmates have been collecting and counting shoes for the past three weeks.
