Alexandra Lytou, from Aperi village of Karpathos, had one wish for her birthday, and this was to actively help Animal Welfare Karpathos’ mission. To that end, in spite of her young age, she asked her parents to help her organize a birthday fundraiser for Animal Welfare Karpathos. Her parents immediately contacted AWK’s board members and requested permission to do so as well as guidance.
During her birthday, the sealed jar quickly filled with 152.80 euros! The amount was counted by Maria Pavlakos (AWK’s board member) in the presence of Alexandra’s family. Alexandra can be seen in the photos proudly carrying the receipt and certificate of donation.
This act of kindness may seem simple but it brings much joy when children take such wonderful actions to benefit those around them. Animal Welfare Karpathos would like to congratulate Alexandra for her selflessness and compassion towards the strays, as well as her parents for supporting her idea and helping her implement it. We hope that Alexandra’s sensitivity will help her achieve all of her dreams, as she has already proved to be a compassionate leader.
