Listen up, grown-ups. He's the self appointed voice for an entire generation. Kid President tells it like it is.
KID PRESIDENT AWESOME KIDS OF THE DAY — Matthew and Jack!
Matthew Pietrzyk is 7 years old and needs a kidney. His mom donated one of her kidneys to Matthew, but it failed. His chances of finding a match are 3 in 10,000.
These can be daunting figures for anyone, let alone a child.
Two years ago, Jack Scoble also endured unexplained kidney and heart failure. He was in an induced coma and underwent numerous procedures for a very long time until he finally received a kidney donation.
Jack, now 5 years old, and his parents recently came across Matthew’s page, A million likes for a kidney for Matthew. Jack remembers what it was like to wait for a kidney donation. Watch the video to see his encouraging message to Matthew, a boy he has never met.
As Jack says, “Keep your chin up, Matthew!”

Awesome job, Tommy!
Remember Jack Andraka? He’s the guy that developed a novel paper sensor that could detect pancreatic, ovarian, and lung cancer in 5 minutes for as little as 3 cents.
Also, he’s 15 years old.
Watch Jack as he speaks at a TEDx event. He’s an awesome reminder that age should never determine the value of one’s ideas.
