It takes a pretty spectacular kid to decide to forego birthday presents: Meet amazing, eight-year-old Kaitlyn!

This year, Kaitlyn asked friends and family to make donations to the David Suzuki Foundation in lieu of personal gifts to her and raised an astounding $850!

Kaitlyn has been interested in environmental stewardship for quite some time, especially in the impact of garbage and pollution on oceans and the water supply. During her research, she discovered the David Suzuki Foundation and the Blue Dot movement. She chose to fundraise to "highlight the exceptional life's work of a great Canadian and his Foundation's efforts to ensure our Earth is healthy for future generations."

Thanks Kaitlyn!

We would like to extend our sincerest gratitude to Kaitlyn not only for her outstanding fundraising efforts but more importantly for spreading the word about protecting our fragile water supply.

You are truly inspiring, Kaitlyn!

It is easy and fun to set up a birthday party that supports the David Suzuki Foundation. For more information, check out our community fundraising page.
