Betty on the News: 6-Year-Old Sells Toys to Save Local Police Dogs
By selling her toys, Kayleigh Crimmins raises money for bullet-proof vests for police dogs.
What a big-hearted animal lover! Six-year-old Kayleigh Crimmins has saved five police dogs of the Newport News K-9 division in Virginia by selling her own toys on Craigslist to raise money for bullet-proof vests for the pooches.
In honor of her efforts, Kayleigh recieved a standing ovation at a city council meeting. The little girl has also raised funds for dogs in K-9 units in Maryland and North Carolina by selling toys, T-shirts and stickers that her friends have donated for the cause.
“I think she’s determined,” says her mother, Lee Crimmins. “I think she loves dogs, and there’s no end to this. She’s made that very clear.”
We have a feeling this won’t be the last we hear about Kayleigh Crimmins and her charitable efforts! (FOX News)
