Advertiser (Grand Falls) - - News - BY SA­MAN­THA GAR­DINER

Carly Tibbo is spend­ing the last few days of her sum­mer va­ca­tion rais­ing money for Ron­ald McDon­ald House through a fundrais­ing cam­paign she started with her grand­mother.

Eight-year-old Carly was bak­ing cook­ies with her grand­mother, Brenda Jenk­ins, and re­calls her nan men­tion­ing Ron­ald McDon­ald House and what the in­sti­tu­tion does to help fam­i­lies of can­cer pa­tients. She im­me­di­ately wanted to help, and de­cided she and her grand­mother would bake cook­ies and sell them to raise money.

“We’re do­ing it be­cause we’re rais­ing money for the Ron­ald McDon­ald House so we can give them money, be­cause some sick kids and their fam­i­lies stay there so they can be close,” said Carly. “We want them to get bet­ter soon.”

Carly’s grand­mother posted on her Face­book page that Carly would be mak­ing and sell­ing cook­ies — in­clud­ing five stars, snow­balls, cho­co­late chip and cherry blos­soms — for $5 a dozen.

Carly re­ceived 160 or­ders of a dozen cook­ies. Pro­ceeds will go to the Ron­ald McDon­ald House char­ity, thanks to Carly’s fam­ily, which of­fered to pur­chase all in­gre­di­ents needed to bake the cook­ies.

Carly will make her do­na­tion to the char­ity dur­ing the Red Shoe Crew walk in Grand Fall­sWind­sor on Sept. 16.
