Meet Mason: A Community Hero
A desire to help animals spurred Mason to raise $32 for the Cranbrook and District Community Foundation during his 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: May 17
Age: 5 years old
Amount donated: $32.
Favourite Activity: Dirtbiking
Who is your hero and why? My daddy because he is really good at dirtbiking.
Organization Receiving Donation: Cranbrook and District Community Foundation (Hough Ingalls Fund for Animal Welfare)
Why did you choose to be a hero today? I want to help animals. I like turtles and frogs and snakes because they are fun to play with and they scare mom. I can keep them in a container for one hour before I have to put them back, and I want them to be safe so I can catch them again.
