An animal lover at heart sacrifices her birthday presents to help a charity in our region.
Beth Jewell loves to play with animals and she decided she needs to do her part to make sure adoptable animals are well-cared-for. So, she donated $270 to Because You Care Animal Shelter along with some gift cards and boxes of supplies.
Jewell tells us, “they have the animals and the animals need help more than I do, so I decided to give to this one because this one doesn’t get a lot of support”.
Toni Jewell, Beth’s Mom, tells us, “charities like that can’t work without people like Beth and other people who want to give back; they can’t really run and do what’s important”.
For her 11th birthday, her friends and family skipped the gifts and helped Beth pay-it-forward to her furry friends instead.
“It feels amazing to know I’m helping out animals because I’m an animal lover because I love ’em.”
It’s something Beth hopes her peers will do too.
Toni tells us, “giving back to your community is more than helping it really makes you feel important inside and that’s really what matters”.
