Maggie Lee Henson was a vibrant 12-year-old who died from a traumatic brain injury she suffered when the First Baptist Church of Shreveport Bus flipped and landed on her on July 12th, 2009, while on the way to youth camp. Because she was so generous in life, her parents decided to allow her to be an organ donor.
Moved by the generous life and tragic death of Maggie Lee, over 18,000 people performed ONE ACT OF KINDNESS in her honor on October 29, 2009, which would have been her 13th birthday.
In the four years following her death, thousands of good deeds have been done in her honor; water wells have been dug in Africa, a home has been built in Haiti, A clothes closet was created on Ramstein Air Base in Germany and many thousands of individuals have given donations of their time, talent and treasure to those in need.
Most recently, Maggie lee's Closet was opened in Shreveport, Louisiana to bless underpriviledged kids with great new / gently-used clothes. Within the first year over 400 kids have been served! The redemptive story of God bringing good from the ultimate bad has just begun.
