Video: Seven-Year-Old Rena Mateja Accepts her Washington's Young Philanthropist of the Year Award
We're pleased as pie to congratulate Rena Mateja on her Young Philanthropist of the Year award!
Check out Mateja's adorable acceptance speech that she gave in front of 1,000 Seattle philanthropists last Friday, on National Philanthropy Day. She gave thanks to her encouraging family members, Caspar Babypants for writing a song that would encourage other kids to help the homeless, and to our wonderful, supportive friends over at Wellspring Family Services. To learn more about Mateja and her mother, Sabrena's inspiring fundraising efforts, check out their feature as two of our 2011 Superheroes for Washington Families.
