Kolten Bezooyen, from Dorothy Dalgliesh Elementary School in Picture Butte, is becoming quite the junior philanthropist. The Grade 5 student is presently raising funds for Earth Rangers through a raffle to win a gift basket and two mystery envelopes. The initiative runs until this Friday, as Bezooyen hopes to raise $250.
“I’m raising money to help the Eastern Wolf and all the money goes to Earth Rangers. They’re going to buy a tracking device, called a GPS satellite collar,” said Bezooyen.
Simply put, Bezooyen loves wolves.
“Me and one of the Grade 7’ers last year, we talked about saving animals and I got into Earth Rangers,” Bezooyen noted.
According to Bezooyen, the gift basket is filled with a variety of prizes including a puzzle, a book and candy. This is the first time Bezooyen has organized a fundraiser for a great cause.
Tickets are $1 for one ticket or $3 for five tickets. Tickets are available at the school.
“I think this shows such initiative, compassion and an awareness of global and environmental issues, I think it should be commended,” said Shari Rogerson, principal of the school.
