11-year-old El Paso native, Ruben Martinez, has started the #ElPasoChallenge after 22 lives were tragically lost.
After a mass shooting rocked the city of El Paso on Saturday, an 11-year-old boy has started a movement to bring his community together again.
Ruben Martinez took to Facebook to spread the word about his #ElPasoChallenge, an act-of-kindness initiative in response to the attack that occurred at a Walmart over the weekend.
The shooting, which is being treated as “domestic terrorism,” claimed the lives of 22 and injured 24 people.
An 11-year-old started the #ElPasoChallenge to help his community heal.
Here's how it works: He is challenging each person in El Paso to do 22 good deeds for others — one for each of the victims killed in the shooting https://t.co/0WGGhQTgZk

This made me want to cry in the best way possible. The children are our future. Raise your children with love and compassion like this wonderful mother has. I’m 2,000 miles away but I’ll be doing this with my 7-year-old. #elpasoCHALLENGE ✊ https://t.co/J9LkcjPWS1
