At the age of seven, Mandi knew she wanted to make a difference in the lives of others and wanted to ensure that kids, just like herself, had their basic needs met. Sharing her vision with her mom, she became a champion for this cause and the founder and Chief Charity Officer of Simon Says Give, an organization that has brought kids together to celebrate other kid. The organization founded by 12-year-old, Mandi Simon, is behind philanthropic movements including High Five for Supplies™ which has provided school supplies for more than 16,000 students, Birthday Celebrations which gave more than 600 birthday celebrations to kids in-need, and the Kids Celebrating Kids® In Action Program where kids bring their creativity to service project work.
