10_year Old Girl Fundraising For Cancer Research, One Odd Job At a Time

A 10-year-old Whitby, Ont. girl is using her summer break to raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society, one odd job at a time.

Francesca LoGiacco, who recently launched the “My Summer’s Not Gonna Be A Bummer“, has already raised more than $1,500 by doing a number of chores for people in her community and running a lemonade stand in her school’s parking lot.

Since last month, LoGiacco — who has been blogging about her campaign — has baked cookies for a senior’s home, feed cats and helped a mom walk her dog.

Some of the tasks LoGiacco suggests on her blog include: washing cars, pulling weeds, visiting seniors in long-term care homes, and flower pruning.

“I will do tasks asked by my donors … and donate all the money I have made to the foundation,” LoGiacco says on her blog, which is managed by her mom.

The self-described “worker bee” has already lost five family members to cancer, including her aunt, two great-grandparents, her grandmother and her 21-year-old cousin.
