Hi! My name is Kyra and I am so excited to meet all of you.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I live with my mom, my dad, and my brother Noah. My mom is awesome and kind and generous. My dad is a bit of a geek for math and loves any and all exercise. Noah is nice and I love him, but he is my little brother so getting along isn’t always an option. I also have four dogs. One of those dogs is Charles Lafitte. He is a serious black labrador that I love.
I like basically everything, but the things that I love are – reading, paddle boarding, hanging out with my friends, shopping, animals (especially dogs), volunteering, and taking care of kids (love babies). Even though I like most things, there are certain things I could do without, like math and people who don’t recycle. Something that I really enjoy is volunteering. I like seeing smiling faces when I help someone and this is the purpose of writing to you.
I would like to ask for your help. Most of the time kids are dismissed when it comes to making a real difference. Here it is not the case. Now, with your help, we can help the world become a better place for others and ourselves.
There are many amazing programs that help people have a better life everyday. There are so many organizations and programs that help others live a better, healthier and more educated life. Unfortunately, these organization need help in order to help others. This is where I need to know about your life. I want you to tell me what is important to you and what has made a difference in your life. And then I want to go even farther than that and ask why they have helped you. Then, with your ideas, we can make sure that they have all the support that they need to help others.
I can’t wait to hear what all of you have to say!
Kyra Citron and Charles!
