What began with one little girl’s ambition turned into a $600 reality for Project Hope No-Kill Humane Society.

For three months last year, Chloe Corzine, the 8-year-old daughter of Richard and Cricket Corzine of Metropolis, embarked on a fundraiser for the shelter after learning about the book Here’s My Dollar. Written by Gary Soto, the book is based on the true story of little girl who’d visited the Chaffee Zoo in Fresno, Calif., which needed funding. The little girl wrote to her local newspaper about the zoo’s plight and set out to save it $1 at a time.

Inspired, Chloe set out on a similar mission for Project Hope after being introduced to it over the summer when she and her mother took a kitten they had found.

“Chloe’s passion is animals. When she was out there, she got totally mesmerized by all those animals,” Cricket Corzine said in December.
