Grace Norris from Paradise decided this year to ask all of her family and friends to give her money for her birthday in lieu of presents. Here she is donating $400 she received to Heavenly Creatures (a not for profit animal rescue group based in St. John’s). Grace’s proud mom, Rhonda, says, “I feel that if we teach our young children compassion at an early age, then they will carry it with them later in life.”

    WTG Grace and WTG Mom! Rhonda, you and I have the same belief, teach kids compassion and hopefully they will carry it on with their children, and so on and so on. Gracie is a beautiful young lady with a heart of gold. She will go far in life with that attitude!
