Joining an ensemble of young philanthropists impacting their communities for the better, Baskin-Robbins is excited to recognize Jaden Lowery from Grand Prairie, Texas for his passion and heartwarming good deeds.
At just six years old, Lowery was diagnosed with B-cell Lymphoma. Instead of letting his illness define him, Lowery thought about others who may be suffering, like the homeless and other children with life-threatening illnesses, and began having conversations with his family about ways to help. After beating Lymphoma, Lowery told his parents that he would like to give his birthday money to the homeless and hospitals.
This inspiration led Lowery to create his own nonprofit two years later, Jaden Cares, which provides care and assistance to the homeless and kids with life-threatening illnesses through volunteering and in-kind donations. From providing meals and hygiene products for the homeless to organizing a toy drive for sick children at Cook Children’s Medical Center, Lowery has stepped up for his community in a big way, having assisted approximately 4,000 people in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
Baskin-Robbins is honored to recognize Lowery and the work he has done in his community. As a thank you for all of his efforts and to acknowledge his heartwarming mission, Jaden will receive free ice cream for a year! The Baskin-Robbins Joy in Childhood Foundation is also paying his good deeds forward with a $5,000 donation to the charity of his choice, Wipe Out Kids Cancer (WOKC-Dallas).
When Lowery isn’t giving back, he enjoys reading, drawing, dancing and cooking, as well watching anime or any superhero movie. When he grows up, Lowery wants to be a surgeon or a chef. With his year of free ice cream, he plans to indulge in his favorite flavor, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.
