When Kayla was 12, she decided to use her photography skills to make the world a better place. She started taking pictures of animals like marmots, squirrels and mountain goats, then turned them into beautiful note cards that she sells on her website Cards4Caring.com. The cards have allowed Kayla to donate thousands of dollars to the Wild Animal Sanctuary. Kayla, you are an inspiration to kids everywhere!!
In Kayla’s own words:
My name is Kayla, and I am fortunate enough to live in Colorado. One of the reasons I feel so lucky to live here is because of the animals and nature. The marmots, squirrels, and mountain goats are especially good subjects. I feel like photography can benefit the world. That is why in 2012, when I was 12 years old, I started this non-profit called Cards for Caring. I am selling note cards with my original photos on them, and donating the money I get to non-profits such as the Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg. My favorite things to photograph are animals and anything in nature, and I am willing to wait for hours until I feel like I got just the right photo. It feels great when you capture a moment just right. Out of so many precious moments in life, you were able to get out there and capture one of them. Go take some photos!
My goal at Cards for Caring is to raise money for nonprofits that I feel passionate about. I want to use my photography skills to make the world a better place. I am currently donating to the Wild Animal Sancuary is in Keensburg, Colorado. The mission of this magical place is to rescue and provide life-long homes for endangered captive wild animals. I think what they do for these animals is very special because these poor animals can’t help themselves.
