There is nothing we like more than hearing from our members and supporters—this is especially true when it comes to young nature heroes like Molly.
You see, Molly is 10 year old inspiration. For the last two years, she has participated in a craft fair at the Robbins Library in Arlington, hand-making stuffed owls. Last year, she donated half of her proceeds to an organization that helped the homeless. This year, her love of owls and her desire to protect wildlife led her to Mass Audubon.
“A lot of animals are endangered and they are the ones that need a lot right now,” Molly said. “Because of global warming, they are being harmed, and I wanted to do something to help them.”
She chose the fabrics and colors, sewed 24 stuffed owls, and even gave them unique names adorned on a tag. Going into the craft fair, Molly said she was confident, but also knew that if she only sold 1, that would still help. Turns out, she sold all 24, raising $60 for Mass Audubon.
“Molly has always been a kid that takes action to help others,” her mom, Karen, said. “Last summer, she begged us to help her have a bake sale on our corner after the hurricanes. She doesn’t just want to do something, she does something. I admire that about her.”
So do we. Thank you Molly!
