Meet Amara: a Community Hero

This week’s Community Hero is seven-year-old Amara of Cranbrook.

A Christmas baby, Amara’s birthday party is held every July. This year Amara raised $50 for the East Kootenay SPCA during her birthday party for the Be A Community Hero campaign.

Be a Community Hero encourages kids of all ages who are hosting a party or celebration to choose a cause close to their heart and ask their guests to bring a small donation instead of a present. When making the donation to the organization of choice, the child will have his or her photo taken and be featured on as the week’s community hero. The child will also take home a certificate and, better yet, the awesome, warm fuzzy feeling one gets from choosing to give rather than receive.

Name: Amara

Birthday: Dec. 25, 2008

Favourite activity: Play with my winter ponies and winter activities.,

Who is your hero and why?: My Mom and Nana because they are always helping in our home and other places. They are always there when I need them. They are happy and brave and put others before them.

Amount of donation: $50

Organization receiving donation: East Kootenay SPCA.

Why did you choose to be a hero today? To help kittens and puppies. I want to help them because they do not have a home with a family. They take care of sick animals. They give them food, water and shelter and best they give them love until someone else can.
