Birthday girl helps Elizabeth’s Wildlife Center

Clare Reimer decides to forego birthday gifts in lieu of donations

Clare Reimer

For her fourth birthday in a row, nine-year-old Clare Reimer asked for donations to an animal rescue centre in lieu of presents.

This year, she raised $230 for Elizabeth’s Wildlife Center in Abbotsford.

Deciding who to raise money for this year was an easy decision. In August, Clare brought a pigeon with an injured wing to Elizabeth’s for rehabilitation, and she made that her charity of choice for 2015.

To date, Clare has collected $920 for animal rescue.

In 2012, she raised $305 for Greyhaven Exotic Bird Sanctuary. The following year, she raised $215 for Greyhaven Exotic Bird Sanctuary and, in 2014, she raised $170 for the Vancouver Aquarium’s sea otters.

Elizabeth’s Wildlife Center, a non-profit since 1999 relies solely on donations from the public to run the facility. For more information, visit  elizabethswildlifecenter.org.
