Maeghan De Jong and her pal Krinkles presented Maeve O’Byrne, President of the Hospital Foundation, with $139.
Last month Maeghan De Jong celebrated her sixth birthday with her closest buddies. She also gave her guests instructions to bring a donation, rather than a gift, to the party. As a result, Maeghan turned her birthday into a fundraising event “to raise money for toys for kids in the hospital.” At Maeghan’s “Fancy Nancy Party” the girls did hair, nails, and crafts. Maeghan’s generosity raised $139 for the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation. Her gift will be directed towards the Paediatric Unit at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). Maeve O’Byrne, Foundation President, was “impressed by young Maeghan’s consideration of other children; what a great role model she is to her friends and family.”
