Langley girl makes a selfless wish

8-year-old Aubrielle Bibeau is raising money for the BC Children’s Hospital.

A Langley girl has one special holiday wish this season – to help bring smiles and toys to sick kids.

Eight-year-old Aubrielle Bibeau is selling her drawings to raise money to buy toys for kids at the BC Children’s Hospital for the third year in a row.

Aubrielle’s mom Lizsa Bibeau explained her daughter’s idea sparked when Aubrielle was just six years old and asked if she could sell her drawings to raise money for sick kids.

“She has a big heart and she wants to give and help others. She knows that there’s other people who aren’t as fortunate as she is and there aren’t always kids that have toys and there’s sick kids that don’t have their health like she does. She’s aware of how fortunate she is,” said Lizsa.

Aubrielle increases her goal each year, and this year she hopes to reach $1,100.

In the first year, Aubrielle raised $800, and last year she raised $1,056.

“She’s determined, she’s motivated,” added Lizsa.

“There’s no words for how proud I am and how much it’s grown.”

With a few days to deadline on Dec. 7, Aubrielle is a couple hundred dollars away from hitting her monetary goal, and has collected 107 donated toys.

This Saturday, Aubrielle is going to Toys R’ Us in Willowbrook Mall to shop for toys for BC Children’s Hospital.

To purchase a drawing, or make a donation, Lizsa can be contacted through the Facebook group “Aubrielle’s Wish,” here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/186088731796860/
