Jeremiah and Joshua West aren’t your typical young boys. At just 8 and 6 respectively, the West brothers started “Champions for Change,” an ambitious initiative aimed at teaching young people how to give, save, and spend their money wisely.

When it comes to money matters, Jeremiah and Joshua know what they’re talking about, too. After writing their own children’s book, the boys started a business and now regularly speak at schools and community programs, teaching other young people how to be kidpreneurs while doing good.

Champions for Change is also the title of the brothers’ book series, which merges the boys’ passion for encouraging literacy with encouraging others how to give back. So far, Jeremiah, now 10, and his little brother Joshua, 7, have been successful. In addition to being recognized for their work by news outlets, the pair has organized various initiatives that have raised thousands of dollars for charity.

Last year, the Greece, NY brothers, hosted two Christmas parties for homeless families, handing out  with meals and gifts to over 200 people; organized a “Kids Fun Run,” raising over $3,000 to help a cancer-stricken six-year-old pay for treatments; and hosted a “Feed a Family” Thanksgiving event that gave away over 1,300 pounds of food to 42 families. Recently, the brothers hosted a “Birthday in a Bag” event for 20 kids in foster care who rarely get to celebrate their special day.

While their love of philanthropy is inspiring, what’s even more wonderful is that Jeremiah and Joshua have gotten other kids to join them in becoming “change agents.” In 2014, more than 200 kids volunteered along side the West brothers, spreading their mission even further.

What could be more awesome than that?

Check out an interview with Jeremiah and Joshua as they explain why they decided to write a book and give back to others.
