On a sunny, summer day, Jemma Sommer stands on a corner in the Tremont neighborhood selling her stuffed animals out of a red wagon for $1 each.
"I wanted to sell my toys to raise money for the Cleveland APL to help animals," says 5-year-old Jemma.
She decided to sell her stuffed animals after her Mom saw another little girl on Facebook raising money by selling her toys, too.
"She said ‘we have to do this,’ and here we are," says her mother Alyssa Sommer.
Thanks to Jemma, dogs and cats at the shelter will benefit from this amazing and compassionate fundraising project.
