Never too young to help!

It's always amazing to come across generous individuals who request donations to RSPCA NSW in lieu of birthday gifts. But when this particular individual makes such a request for their 6th birthday, it makes the act that much more extraordinary!

Welcome to the scene Mary Alexander, just turned 6 years old from Newcastle Grammar.

She made the decision, on her own accord, to ask all her party guests to bring in donations for RSPCA NSW instead of birthday presents. After raising a whopping $260, Mary, along with her mother, Gaelene, journeyed to the RSPCA Tighes Hill Veterinary Hospital and met with Nursing Supervisor, Tracee McWhinnee to make the donation in person. Tracee was touched by act and said that "it was lovely to know that there are young children out there that care so much".

Education Officers, Steph and Eva, along with Tracee, organised with Newcastle Grammar to present a Certificate of Appreciation to Mary at the school assembly to recognise her wonderful efforts! Eva gave a brief talk to the assembly to let all the students know how the money raised will help all the animals at RSPCA NSW.

Thanks Mary for helping the many animals that need RSPCA's help and we hope your passion for animals continues to grow!

If you or someone you know is thinking about fundraising for RSPCA NSW, we would love to hear from you! Call us at 9782 4460 or email: education@rspcansw.org.au

Mary's donation can help house a
RSPCA dog for at least 52 days!
