A helping paw: CSHS student raises funds for Australia wildlife

A love of animals led one Conway Springs High School student to raise funds for wildlife hurt and displaced by the devastating wildfires in Australia.
Karley Mooneyham has long had a love of animals.
“Ever since I was little, I’ve been into wildlife biology,” she said. Her interest is such that she plans to go into wildlife biology. She plans to start her education at Butler Community College.
Mooneyham set up an online fundraiser. In addition, she got permission to organize a bake sale at school. Over the course of a week, she raised $350. Considering that most teens don’t have much money, that’s a pretty good haul, said her mom, Angie May.
She is donating the money to Wildlife Warriors, a group that has helped 90,000 animals in Australia. This was the first time Mooneyham has done anything like this.
“I’m grateful. I’m happy that everyone wanted to lend a helping hand,” she said.
May was proud to see her daughter step up for a cause she believes in.
“She said, ‘Mom, I want to do this.’ She took the initiative to ask the school if she could have a bake sale,” May said.
