Have been doing some freelance work for the Virginian Pilot and thought I would post a few things to see if anyone has any opinions. This first post is from an assignment that was an advance about an event this little girl and her parents had sponsored. The girls name is Kayleigh Crimmins and she is a home-schooled girl that is a certified lover of the entire animal kingdom. She’s full of energy and has a zoo of pets at home. Her dad is a Chesapeake Police Officer and her mom retired from the Chesapeake Fire Department. They helped her set up a 501(c)(3) to raise money to buy bullet proof vests for the K-9s and heat “alarms” so the K-9s don’t get overheated in the cars. She sold her toys to buy the first vest and now local businesses donate parts of their sales as fundraisers. Hard not to love kids loving dogs. Fun shoot and I had a hard time deciding which ones to submit. Would love to hear your thoughts.
