Savannah Knapp

KNX Hero of the Week
Thursday, March 21st
An ambitious 12-year-old from Newbury Park is making life a little better for Southern California kids with a creative fundraising campaign. 

Here's the KNX Hero of the Week:​ 

When Savannah Knapp found out that her some fellow classmates couldn't afford to go to summer camp, she decided to help them out, by starting a collection project called Go Change Me.  And she didn't let anyone stop her from making a difference:

"Your age doesn't limit the difference you can make on the world," says Savannah. 

Savannah says her brothers in the military are part of her motivation.

Over the past three years, Savannah's go-change-me campaign has raised $16,000  dollars, and she has sent 75 kids to camp! 

"Change makes change!" remarks Savannah. 

The project is simple. It consists of boxes that are set-up at a couple of schools in Westlake Village.

The miss pre-teen pageant winner and future zoologist has taken her enthusiasm all the way to Washington DC, working with the motorcycle club Rolling Thunder.  She's even spoke at a women's conference. And next month she hopes to inspire young girls at the Girl Scouts convention in Ventura County. 

Savannah's mother Wendy says Savannah always thinks big.  

"She doesn't just say it, she does it!"

We are proud to name Savannah Knapp as the KNX Hero of the Week!
