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 e-know.ca 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.
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.
