Kids Helping Kids With Cancer

Kids Helping Kids (Sharon, Salima, and her mom, Kim)
Back on December 23rd, a very special fund raiser was held at The Belize Zoo! The Belize Zoo joined with Miss Salima Barrow, daughter of Belize's Prime Minister, Dean Barrow and put forward an effort to raise funds on behalf of children afflicted with cancer. The big event happened at the zoo, with contributions going to the Belize Cancer Center in Dangriga. Those who took part received a signed copy of the new children's book WORDS OF WISDOM FROM HAPPY THE OWL as well as the opportunity to give beautiful black jaguar Lucky Boy a "high Five." Lots of children will benefit from Hopefully, many if not all of these kids will be able to visit the zoo in the New Year. This effort was initially kick started by Miss Salima Barrow. The Zoo was touched by her efforts and carried it forward. Kids Helping Kids With Cancer was a hit, and continues until the 31st of December.
