“I once asked my father how he overcame obstacles and became who he wanted to be. He replied, ‘Hope, hope keeps me strong,'” Milo wrote. “After I unexpectedly lost him at 13 due to a heart attack, it helped me overcome grief and support other children who lost loved ones.
“Regardless of life’s hardships and uncertainties, hope is always there. It’s our job to find that hope to move forward,” Milo told Google.
Milo Golding said that after the death of his dad, he felt his life purpose shift, leading him to make a charity called Sanguine Path that spotlights on aiding children in his community who have suffered a comparable misfortune or challenge.
“We serve children 18 and under who have lost loved ones or been affected by challenging experiences by providing them with Christmas and birthday gifts, care packages, and back-to-school kits,” he told Google, adding that children are referred to the program by relatives, school staff and grief counselors.

As a prize, Google is giving Milo a $30,000 college scholarship, a $50,000 donation to his school or nonprofit association of his decision, and a package of Google hardware and swag.
The Doodle includes a mixed-race kid kneeling in the act to hand a younger child a balloon while fixing the scarf around the latter’s neck.
Two young kids can be found behind the scenes, one looking above the wall the Google logo is set against, while the other is spreading his arms and facing the screen with his back.
The artwork will be highlighted on Google’s homepage on Tuesday for 24 hours.
