Yes, Virginia, there is a Kayleigh Crimmins

crimminsSix-year-old Kayleigh Crimmins sold her toys on Craigslist to raise money to buy bullet-proof vests for police dogs in Newport News.

The Virginia girl received a well deserved standing ovation from the Newport News City Council Tuesday.

“I think she’s determined. I think she loves dogs,” her mother, Lee Crimmins, told MyFoxDC.com. “And there’s no end to this. She’s made that very clear.”

Crimmins who also sells toys donated by friends, as well as t-shirts and stickers, has made similar donations to K-9 units in Maryland and North Carolina.

Some of her donations have gone towards other safety equipment for police dogs, including a heat alarm for patrol cars that alerts officers to rising temperatures that could be hazardous for their canine partners.

Being from the same area in Virginia, I have to say this makes me very proud of this young lady. After hearing so many sad and disturbing stories about the mistreatment of animals at the hands of children and teens, this is so refreshing and uplifting to hear about this wonderful girl. Bravo Kayleigh!
