“Hi, my name is Lily Wright. On June 8th I will be 9 years old. I am in third grade. I love reading (The Harry Potter series are some of my favorite books), Dr. Who, Seattle Sounders, geocaching, camping and hiking, science and nature, cooking with my mom, sewing, arts & crafts, you know usual kids stuff.
I know I could ask for a lot of things for my upcoming birthday, but you know what? I realized a few years ago, I may not have a house that belongs to my family with my own room, or money to go on trips. Yet, I have, everything I need! I have my family and friends. I get to go to school and learn new things. I get to go do things like hiking and camping. I have so many chances and I am so lucky.
So, for my birthday this year, I am not asking for books or crafts. I am asking for your help to raise money for one of my favorite non-profits, Comics4Kids.
Comics4kids promotes literacy and helps foster an early love for reading in children. One of my favorite things to do is lose myself in the other worlds known as books. All kinds from comics, to novels, to pictures books. I want all kids to have the same learning opportunities and love of reading as I do”.
UPDATE (6-9-2016) Lily: “Wow! Thanks so much for all your giving everyone. If we all help each other learn, and we care about each other more, this world will be so much better.”
