Three girls from Haisla Nation took it upon themselves to raise money for BC Children’s Hospital.
McKenna Stevens (8), Ashley Nyce (8), and Korryn Gardiner (7) decided to run a lemonade stand July 8 until July 10, running from 1:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. each day.
On Friday they raised $337.00, on Saturday $364.82 and on Sunday $439.50 for a grand total of $1,141.32.
On behalf of these girls and their parents, we would like to thank the Haisla Nation, Debbie Grant, Miriam and Ben Bolton, Anne Grant, the Quantum Murray Nightshift crew and Overwaitea for all their donations and the C’lmo’Ca child care centre where the stand was set up.
One of these girls had an experience at the hospital herself and another’s sister also had an experience at the hospital also. This was their inspiration to get this started.
These three girls are a very big inspiration to the Haisla Nation and received many compliments on what an awesome thing they did and how they make us so proud.
