What an amazing little boy.

A 12-year-old boy has started his own project that aims to improve the lives of sick children.

Little Campbell, who is from Australia, taught himself to sew at a young age, as he “loves craft and making things.”

Back in 2014, the Tasmanian local asked his parents if he could buy Christmas presents for kids in hospital, to cheer them up and make their lives and little bit happier.

Project 365 is described on Facebook “as a mission I have set myself to have 365 gifts made by me to take to hospitals, charities and distribution points by next Christmas, to give to children/.”

By making one toy a day, Campbell manages to gift something to 365 kids come Christmas time – and he does all this using his own pocket money.

Meanwhile, Campbell fundraises for his project by auctioning off his special bears, and spends the money on more materials to help him produce better toys for kids in need.

His mum, who he lives with in Tasmania, says if she tells him not to work on his sewing he will “sneak off” and do it anyway.
