TRIGG sisters are showing you are never too young to start helping others.
Jade Green and daughters Poet (5) and Allegra (9) Downie held a cake stall outside their home on January 4, which raised $325 to support relief efforts for the devastating eastern states bushfires.
“The community was amazing, buying cakes or just donating money,” Ms Green said.
“Even after we had sold out of cakes, people were ringing our doorbell to drop off their donations.”
Poet believed they were “just doing a good thing” and Allegra said it was a way of helping those in need.
“We raised money to help the fire people, now it can help the people get food and water and new homes,” she said.
Despite the devastation being caused by the blazes, the efforts of people across the community are heartwarming.
Cake stalls run by children have also popped up in Scarborough and Woodlands, and local organisations are getting behind fundraisers.
The Rotary Club of Karrinyup is donating money from its weekly raffles at Stirling Farmers Market during January to Rotary Australia’s bushfire appeal.
More than $1000 was raised at the January 5 market.
Businesses are also doing their bit and a range of fundraising events have been organised.
