Girl learns about helping others

A little girl is learning about helping others here and overseas.

Sydney Kirby, 7, decided she wanted to raise $100 for two charities and posted an ad on her mom, Connie Kirby’s, Facebook page.

She made cookies and sold them, and doubled her goal amount of money raised, said her mom Connie.

Sydney decided to give half of the money to the children’s hospital through the local Dairy Queen and the other half to the Terrace Pentecostal Assembly to disperse to a campaign for clean drinking water in Africa.

“She is a seven-year-old with the biggest heart, she always wants to help others in need,” says Connie.

“I wanted Sydney to know just how important it was for her to want to help sick kids and kids in need.”
