Madeline Morgan, Miss WI Jr. Teen encourages others to "think they can" through her own charitable organization

About a year ago, Madeline Morgan - Miss Wisconsin Jr. Teen - started her own community service project, the Little Engines that Can (L.E.T.C) Project, where she collect books, stuffed animals, and toys and then donates them to kids in hospitals, homeless shelters, and disaster areas.

Of course, this is absolutely perfect for Madeline! Since becoming the WI Jr Teen Queen - she took all the books and bears our Miss Wisconsin contestants donated pageant weekend for their required community involvement competition and was able to use them to donate through L.E.T.C. Along with other books and bears, she herself at collected - she was recently able to make a large donating to the Family Children's Hospital in Wisconsin.

Many young ladies involved in the NAM organization have started their own organization that are near and dear to her heart. Madeline started L.E.T.C because, "One of my favorite books to read as a kid was The Little Engine that Could. The well-known story of how perserverance, persistence, and believing in yourself always inspired my to go out and accomplish all of dreams! Bringing this message to children who deserve, but do not get a normal childhood, by sending Books, Stuffed Animals, and gently used toys, is one way that I hope to inspire them that no matter what situation they may be in, they can accomplish any dream they may have!"
