While 8-year-old Amelia was recovering from brain surgery, she and her grandma would take daily walks around the neighborhood. When Amelia saw trash, she made it her mission to pick it up. This is just one small example of Amelia's beautiful heart, so it was no surprise to those who know her when she wished to take care of the world. When asked why she chose this as her wish, Amelia said, "Because I care about the world, animals and people."Right now, as part of her wish, Amelia is leading hundreds of volunteers on a city-wide park cleanup! Follow along with #AmeliasWish and share how you take care of the world, too, if you're as inspired by Amelia as we are! #environment #volunteer #loveearth #AmeliasWish @makeawishmo | KC Parks Instagram Photos
