12 Year Old Raises Over $25,000 For Charity Selling Art Cards

19 Dec

A recent social media post alerted us to an amazing 12 year old young man living in Riley Park, Jeremy Lynch.  Jeremy and his family moved to Vancouver from the UK about 1 ½ years ago.   When Jeremy was 4 years old, he decided he loved business and wanted to make money, but Jeremy also realized he doesn’t really need money. At 6 years old, Jeremy learnt that one of his favourite animals the cheetah was on its way to becoming extinct.  Jeremy then started making and selling cards to help raise money for the Cheetah Conservation Fund.     

Jeremy makes all his own cards and sells them for $3.00 a piece with 100% of the proceeds going to the Cheetah Conservation Fund and now also OceanWise and the International Justice Mission.  On good weather days, you will find Jeremy out in front of various businesses on Main or Cambie for an hour at a time selling his cards. If you wish to support Jeremy and purchase his cards, you can also find his cards for sale at a few businesses that host a box in their reception area. We’ve set out below where you can purchase his art cards in person:

The Sellution, 3604 Main Street
Pittie Coffee, 3702 Main Street (at 21st)
West King Edward Animal Clinic, 3386 Cambie Street
Animal Cambie Village Animal Hospital. 510 West 24th Avenue
Clearview Orthodontics, #1807 – 805 West Broadway

Jeremy is an impressive young man and has raised a whopping $25,000! As one that has raised funds for various charities over the years, this is no small feat.  We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Jeremy who his father says “cares deeply about taking care of the planet”.  With this much passion and drive at such a young age, we expect he’ll be making positive impacts wherever life leads him.

In the event you missed the recent feature on Global BC’s This Is BC with Jay Durant, we invite you to give it a listen, it’s rather inspiring.
