7-Year-Old Donates Piggy Bank to The Nature Conservancy

leave a comment »

Can you imagine? After two years (two years!) of saving, 7-year-old Andrew Kirz, asked to go to the San Francisco offices of The Nature Conservancy. There he broke his piggy bank and donated all his money. A whooping $137.88!

The young environmentalist told the folks at the offices, “I gave my piggy bank to The Nature Conservancy to help them save plants and animals from going extinct like the dinosaurs did. It took me two to three years to save all this money, most of it from the Tooth Fairy. The Nature Conservancy can buy an island with this to protect the plants and animals on it.”

Heart-warming.
