Cameron Jaquith, Young Ambassadors raise money for sick kids
Cameron Jaquith is at it again. She just won't quit raising money for sick kids. Last year she raised more than $3000. Recently the enterprising girl barely eight years old presented a cheque for $4520 to the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation. There was the actual cheque representing the combined funds raised through her annual raffle of donated prizes and sale of gently used goods through her school at the Edgewater (School) Spring Shop Fest in Pincourt. Then there was the giant ceremonial cheque that Josie Pizucco who manages the Young Ambassadors Club of the Children's helped Cameron fill out so she could have her picture taken with it. That had to be the most fun. Cameron had made a video for Facebook the night before she delivered the money thanking everyone who had bought tickets and congratulating prize winners saying, "See you next year if you buy more tickets."
The Young Ambassadors Club is a group of 200 children between 1-18 years of age. One out of three has a chronic condition or has been hospitalized. Their average age is about 8. "These young champions have chosen to invite their family and friends to make a donation in honor of their birthday or special occasion," Pizzuco says.
