Trumbull teen raises money for Australian wildlife affected by wildfires

Posted: Updated:

Samara Negrin, 13, is urging people to help her bring aid to the animals devastated by the Australian wildfires.

“When I heard about these animals dying in Australia, I instantly was in tears and I knew I had to do something about it,” Negrin said.

Negrin and her mother took to the internet to create a GoFundMe on Friday. In just three days, raised $1,530 as of Tuesday evening. 

She also made handmade bookmarks with her friend, which she is selling throughout her town for $1. All the money raised will go to the Australian Wildlife Conservancy.
