Beau Shell turned his ice cream obsession into a mobile business, and he did it when he was only eight. Now 13, that kid from Athens, Georgia is making a positive difference in the world. Since starting Lil’ Ice Cream Dude, he’s raised more than $15,000 for charity and now he’s helping other kids get to see the new movie “A Wrinkle In Time.”
Beau has raised $5,000 to treat 100 girls to a special screening of the new Disney movie. His guests will be treated to a red carpet event, including dinner and a goodie bag with a copy of the book. He hopes the movie inspires the girls, who all have an interest in STEM education and were chosen by their teachers.
“STEM girls can be the designer of a new iPhone,” Beau explains. “Find a cure for cancer, design the spacecraft and maybe make a futuristic ice cream, you never know.”
