Birthdays are going to the birds
A six-year-old Langley girl decided birthday presents are for the birds - literally.
Clare Reimer asked guests to her birthday party to not bring gifts for her but instead make donations to Greyhaven Exotic Bird Sanctuary, after seeing a similar story on Hope for Wildlife (knowledge network).
She raised $305 for Greyhaven.
Proud mom Carolyn said two kids from the party have already talked to their parents and will be doing the same thing.
Volunteers from Greyhaven brought some of the birds they care for to her party. To learn more about Grehaven go to www.greyhaven.bc.ca.
