Whiz Kid: Clara Cares
Clara hasn't forgotten her time at the Johns Hopkins Pediatric ICU. She's found a way to thank them for helping her.
Name: Clara H.
Why She's a Whiz: After having to spend time there herself, Clara has been making bracelets to raise money for the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.
In her own words:
I've been there before. I know how scary it can feel. I want to help other kids like me by raising money for the PICU. I hope the money I raise can go towards providing things to make the children feel more at home. When I was there I felt scared. I didn't know what was happening. But the nurses and doctors were really nice. At first I didn't like it but then I began to feel at home because of how well the doctors took care of me. I loved being with the other children. Now that I have thought of a way to help, I want to do it!
Clara, a Centennial Lane Elementary School student, and Amelia. a St. John's Parish Day School student, have been making bracelets with their friend Nina, a Centennial Lane Elementary student for Clara Cares.
They sell the colorful fabric bracelets and donate all profits to the Hopkins PICU.
