OPINION: A paws-itively wonderful campaign

CAMPAIGNS are part of this newspaper's raison d'etre.

We believe the local newspaper can make a real difference to the lives of ordinary people in our local communities.

Here at the South Burnett Times, we're putting the power of print and digital media at the centre of a new campaign aiming to raise $20,000 for Kalila's Quest.

Kingaroy's Kalila Vukelic, 14, has Rett syndrome.

Her family, alongside Kingaroy State High School, is on a quest to raise the $20,000 required for a specially trained dog, who will warn about seizures, comfort Kalila and assist with her mobility.

We're also throwing our support behind this cause and now we're asking for your help too.

It's important that our readers feel they are a part of our stories and a part of the change we hope to create in this community.

By donating to this cause, you give hope to a beautiful 14-year-old and her family.

It's not often I get to be totally biased in the role I play here at the paper but this is a worthy cause I implore everyone to throw their support behind.

The community can join Kalila's quest for a smart pup by donating to her campaign. For more information see: How you can support Kalila's campaign.
