I was so inspired by the project that Julien Leitner, 13 years old, began in an effort to have a positive impact on the world. This dedicated and precocious teenager has a goal to raise 2 million dollars in small 2 dollar donations for charities that help other children around the world.

His foundation, The Archimedes Alliance, is named after the Greek mathematician who said, “give me a lever long enough and a place to stand, and I can move the earth.”

“I knew there were people who wanted to make a difference but didn’t have enough money to do it on their own,” he says in his on-line video. “Now, they don’t have to. I launched the Archimedes Alliance to leverage the power of the Internet and to bring together people of good intentions and limited resources and give them a voice and a means to create the change they envision.”
