The world is full of amazing people, but you don't have to be a movie star or a famous athlete to accomplish big things. Consider the story of Campbell "Bumble" Remess—a regular kid from Tasmania who just wants to bring some cheer to the lives of those who need it most.

世界上到處都有很棒的人,但你不必得是電影明星或是知名運動員才能成就大事業。思考一下坎貝爾.「班布爾」.雷米斯的故事吧——他是一名來自塔斯馬尼亞的普通孩子,他只想帶給那些生活當中亟需快樂的人一些歡樂。

 

When Bumble was only nine, he asked his parents about buying gifts for sick children in the hospital. When his parents told him that they couldn't afford to do so, the young boy hit upon a solution: he'd make the toys himself, and the toys would be teddy bears.

班布爾年僅九歲時,他要求父母買禮物送給住院的病童。當父母告訴他他們負擔不起,這名小男孩想到了一個解決方法:他要自己製作玩具,而玩具將會是泰迪熊。

 

With the aim of making a teddy bear a day, Bumble started Project 365. Each bear, which takes Bumble about an hour, is made especially for a certain person or cause; some are sold to raise money for charity. And Bumble's aren't your average bears—each one is unique, produced in a variety of colors and patterns.

為了達成一天做一隻泰迪熊的目標,班布爾開始了「三六五計畫」。每隻熊都特別為某個人或某個特目標來製作,每隻大約花班布爾一小時的時間;有些則是出售來替慈善募款。而且班布爾的熊和一般的熊不同——每一隻都是獨一無二、用各種顏色及圖案製作而成。

 

Now in his early teens, Bumble has thus far brightened up the lives of hundreds of people with his cuddly creations. "Everyone can do something like this," he says. "I think the world would be a lot happier if everyone was kind and helpful . . . and if everyone had a teddy bear."

現在班布爾已經十幾歲了,目前為止他已經用他可愛的創作熊照亮了數百人的生命。他說:「每個人都可以做像這樣的事情。如果每個人都善良且樂於助人,且如果每個人都有一隻泰迪熊的話……我想這個世界會有更多的歡樂!」
