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.

MasonName: Mason

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.

To Be A Community Hero and get featured on e-KNOW.ca, complete this form and bring it with you when you make your donation!

For info on where/when to drop off the donation and form, contact Jody or Riley at the Cranbrook and District Community Foundation at 250-426-1119.
