Hayley Orlinsky, 7, living in Chicago, Illinois, USA, made colorful rubber bracelets and raised $ 20,000 to the Children’s Hospital Ann and Robert H. Lurie in the city. Thanks to donations collected by Orlinsky, it was reported that the hospital offered healthcare professionals the opportunity to buy protective equipment and contribute to some research projects during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
“TURNED ITS HOBBY INTO A HELP CAMPAIGN”
Orlinsky’s mother, Lori Orlinsky, told local media that Hayley turned her hobby bracelets into a charity campaign and that the bracelets were even receiving buyers from countries outside of the United States.
The number of deaths from Kovid-19 in the USA exceeded 300 thousand
SUPPORT TO THE CAMPAIGN FROM CHICAGO MAYORSHIP LIGHTFOOT
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot also supported Hayley’s aid campaign. Announcing the campaign on his social media account, Lightfoot shared a photo by wearing the bracelets Hayley’s made. On the other hand, Tracey McCusker, the deputy director of the hospital’s foundation, said, “20 thousand dollars is quite an unbelievable amount especially for a 7 year old child. This kind of fundraising effort allows the hospital to use the money for a variety of very different things. “It was absolutely necessary at a time when we really needed to respond to Covid-19 extremely quickly.”
