WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- At 13-years-old, Kyndall Williams is already a philanthropist and children's book author who founded "The Kyndall Project" to promote education.

Her non-profit provides school supplies to students who can't afford them, because she wants to give everyone an equal opportunity to learn and have a bright future.

“Education is important because they need it to grow in the future and be whatever they want to be when they grow up,” said Kyndall.

Kyndall also published four children’s books with her mother to spread important lessons.

“One of them is about being thankful for what you have, and another is about starting a non-profit like she did. It's to teach kids,  'Hey, you are never too young to start a business. You're never too young to do anything you want to do. The sky is the limit,'” said CEO, April Reich.

The Kyndall Project will distribute more than a thousand backpacks at the "Back to School Jam" on August 17 at Rupert Bell Park in Winston-Salem.
