This post is about a young girl named Jill from Sidney, Australia. She is 6 years old. That wasn’t a type “O”. She is 6 years old. Jill has created a site called Jilly Bears Jewels. Here is her mission.

Jill is hoping to sell the jewellery that she has spent much time creating and send all of the money she has made to a charity “that helps children who do not have any money to eat”.

Jill is doing this by donating all the money she raises from the sales of her jewellery to the Australian Lutheran World.
