A 15-year-old from Canada will be one of the lucky guests attending Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding as an acknowledgement to her charitable impact on the world.
Faith Dickinson, of Peterborough, Ontario, will be one of seven philanthropic teens representing The Diana Award at the royal wedding on May 19.
She received the award for her non-profit Cuddles for Charity last year at St. James’s Palace in London, where she was also named the Legacy Award winner.
"Prince William told me I was just doing such an amazing thing," Faith told CBC News last year. "And Prince Harry told me that I was the most impressive redhead there tonight."
Faith started her organization when she was just 9 years old, after her aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. She recalled her aunt telling her how cold she was when receiving treatments and ever since, Faith dedicated herself to making fleece blankets to distribute to cancer patients around the world.
She also launched a second project, where she sends blankets out to soldiers overseas who are suffering from injuries or PTSD.
Ever since the project’s conception, she created more than 3,500 personalized blankets and raised more than $30,000 to pay for fleece and delivery fees.
