On January 21, Halo co-owner Ellen DeGeneres welcomed 9-year-old Karlie Smick to her show to talk about the young girl’s compassion for animals and what she is doing to help them.
Since the age of 6, Karlie decided that she no longer wanted to received birthday presents or even have a birthday party. Instead, she raises money to help animals in need. Karlie says, “I have a really big heart for animals and this makes my heart be full of joy to do this.”
Ellen was so touched by Karlie’s efforts that she gave the young animal rescuer $5,000 worth of Halo food and a trip to Disneyland!
