Capri Everitt, age 10, loved to sing and wanted to do something with her voice; something other than just entering talent competitions and auditioning for musicals. She read a book called “The World Needs Your Kid” and decided that the world needed her help; specifically children living in poverty in other countries; children that did not have the same opportunities as she did.
Her parents, Tom and Kerrie Everitt, came up with an idea that would change their lives and give Capri the chance to use her talent for something good: they would travel around the world to 80 countries where Capri would sing each country’s national anthem in the national language and the journey would be called "Around the World in 80 Anthems". Their son Bowen, age 8, would have the important job of blogging to keep their supporters updated. The purpose of the journey would be to raise money and awareness for orphaned and abandoned children, specifically through a charity called “SOS Children’s Villages”.
Here is the original video that the Everitt's made when they first came up with the idea.
