Mimi giving Guide Dogs a paw up

By Ellie Boswell

Most 10-year-olds have a long wish list for birthday presents – but not Bray Park’s Mimi Nelson.

Instead of gifts for her birthday in June, the Strathpine West State School Year 5 pupil asked friends and family to donate money to a special cause.

An ambassador for Guide Dogs Queensland, Mimi raised $500, and now she’s got her sights set on reaching $1500.

Special guest

To help the cause along, Mimi paid a visit to the Friendly Grocer at Strathpine on Friday, bringing along two-year-old support dog in training Michael to inspire customers to donate to the cause.

“My mum and I have a business called How to Help where we help people learn how to help other people,” Mimi says.

Mum Stacey MacMillan White says she found there were few volunteering opportunities available for young children and she and Mimi were excited to discover Guide Dogs had launched a Youth Ambassador program.
