Seven-Year-Old Raises Over $10K For Africa

Seven-year-old LUCY BRITTO, a listener of SALEM COMMUNICATIONS Christian AC WFFH (94.1 THE FISH)/NASHVILLE, has raised over $10,000 for HEALING HANDS INTERNATIONAL by selling handmade cards. In a little over six weeks, BRITTO has raised enough money to purchase four wells in AFRICA.
BRITTO and her family were not able to participate in THE FISH’S recent WALK 4 WATER event, benefiting HEALING HANDS INTERNATIONAL, but BRITTO decided she want to help anyway. Her idea was to make greeting cards and sell them.
“Every cent of LUCY’s efforts will go directly into helping the drought ridden areas in AFRICA,” says HEALING HANDS INTERNATIONAL Pres. RANDY STEGER. “None of it goes to any form of overhead. We are blessed and thankful for LUCY’s using her talents to help those around the world receive the water of life.”
