Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego - "Anaik has taken his most difficult life experiences and used them to create a better world. His family was deeply impacted by Covid-19, and he responded by making sure other people had access to books as they fought the virus. He as experienced discrimination and responded by hoping educate other young people and improve education curriculum. If there were more people like Anaik, it would be a better world."
“During a frightening and uncertain time for so many, Anaik’s genuine care, compassion and empathy is a wonderful example for all of us. This young boy made more of an impact than he’ll ever know. Not just for our patients who received books and journals, but for the healthcare providers and our foundation team who witnessed his ‘love in action’ firsthand. Thank you, Anaik!”

"The most important piece of it is when you explain where these books are coming from - from a Loving Library, from this young boy, 8-years old, that is such a giving soul. It means so much more"
Nurse Monica Miller
"I think we always need to remember, like Anaik, we can always do something to get involved.Oftentimes, we, I think as humans focus on the problems and we can become entrenched in that and here you have this little boy that sees a problem but then very quickly takes the initiative to create some really amazing solutions.
