Kid President And Grover Remind Us We're All Good People Who Have Something To Give

Kid President, with the help of his furry blue friend Grover, is here to give you and everyone you know a rousing pep talk about how we all can make a positive impact in the lives of others.

“Helping the people around you … It’s easier than you think,” the duo said in a video posted on SoulPancake's YouTube channel on Oct. 10. “You don’t have to have all the answers; you don’t have to be super strong. You just got to show up … You’re never too small, or too blue and furry, to make a big difference.”

Kid President, also known as 10-year-old Robby Novak, and Sesame Street’s Grover are raising awareness about Socktober, an initiative that encourages everyone -- adults and kids alike -- to collect and distribute socks (and other basic essentials) to the estimated 600,000 people who are homeless in the United States.

"Together, we can change everything," Grover says in the video, later quipping, “People who make the world better for other people are some of the best people.”

Plus, changing the world is a lot more fun with friends.
