A six-year-old Maple Ridge girl raised $2,000 for two charities by selling blueberries at the side of the road.
Riyah Biln and her friends spent a few scorching hours in the sun on 232nd Street and 128th Avenue selling the berries last week.
Her goal was to raise $2,000, which she achieved. She will donate half the money to Canadian Feed the Children and the other half to World Vision's West African Food Crisis.
This is the third time Riyah has raised money for charity. Last summer she raised $500 for Somali children. In January, she raised $1,000, donating half to the Friend In Need Food Bank and the other half to World Vision.
The blueberries that Riyah sold this summer were donated by her grandfather who owns Silver Valley Farms in Maple Ridge.
Riyah asked some of her classmates from Eric Langton Elementary to join her selling the blueberries in a tent set up across from the family's PetroCan station on 232nd Street.
Riyah's mother Aman Biln said she hoped other parents would be inspired by her daughter's charity work.
