Share Article

11 year old organizes charitable campaign to support the Ronald McDonald House by collecting .05 cent returnable cans/bottles.

"I just wanted to help make people's lives easier," Alia said. "You know 5 cents may seem like a little but it can add up."

CANs for kids is having a .05 can/bottle drive to support The Ronald McDonald House of Rochester December 5th, 2009. Drop off .05cent returnable cans/bottles from 9am to 11am, at Calkins Road Middle School located at 1899 Calkins Road, Pittsford, NY.

CANs for Kids, along with the help of Henrietta Redemption Center, will be collecting .05 cent returnable cans/bottles from December 1st-December 15th to support Ronald McDonald House. The organization was formed this year by 11 year old Alia Bajorek, to support local charities that help children in need. Alia has been raising money for various local charities since she was 5 years old and this year she chose to help support Ronald McDonald House with her entrepreneurial spirit. Previous charities that Alia has raised money for include, The American Heart Association and The Salvation Army.

Alia believes not only in giving back to her community and helping children less forturnate than herself, but also in preserving the environment by recycling. She believes that she can do both with her organization by bringing awareness to recycling while raising money for children in need. Her motto is "You CAN do it!"

As an added incentive and to say "thank you" for helping, those donating cans/bottles will receive a chance to win a Wii courtesy of the Bajorek Agency Inc. Everyone donating cans will be eligible to win. Drawing will be held on December 15th at the Ronald McDonald House when CANs For Kids delivers the check from the can/bottle drive.
