Nine-year-old Raises $1,000 for Red Cross Sandy Relief

Kansas Capital Area nine year old donor

Nine-year-old Jaedin Turner celebrated her ninth birthday by giving back to help those in need. Jaedin asked guests to bring donations for Hurricane Sandy relief, instead of gifts to her party, and raised $420.

But it didn’t stop there, Jaedin took it upon herself to go out and ask companies to match her donations and ended up raising $1,000 dollars to donate to the Red Cross and Sandy Relief Efforts.

Jaedin will present the check to the Red Cross with her parents Brandi and Eric Turner on December 19 at 12 noon at the Kansas Capital Area Chapter board meeting at 1221 SW 17th Street.
