Recently, the ONE Blog had the great honor of hosting two essays from a very special young man named Laurence Carolin.
It was with enormous sorrow that ONE learned of Laurence’s passing. Aside from being a budding musician, a soccer player, and a bit of a comedian, we at ONE were proud to know Laurence for his role as philanthropist and deeply devoted activist for the world’s poor. Laurence came to the ONE community at age 14 – already in a fight for his own life – and brought with him an enormous passion for equality and a tireless energy in the fight against extreme poverty and disease.
In his short life, Laurence helped to raise thousands of dollars for the world’s poorest, and inspired everyone around him to look at the world through a global perspective. His tenacity for justice wowed us all, and his amazingly positive outlook will continue to inspire us for years to come. The world needs more Laurence Carolins.
