Young Girl's Efforts to Raise Money for a Library in Mongolia

Capucine is a tiny tot from France, but she is a brilliant storyteller. And with her storytelling skills, she is trying to raise money for a library in Mangolia.

Her mum says "I wanted to put Capucine's popularity to a good use, and with the help of several awesome persons, we have set up a project in order to raise money for Edurelief, a development organization based in Mongolia, who helps providing school books to Mongolian kids." (Link)

Turn up the volume and listen to her story....
Starring baby monkeys lost in frightening trees, a witch, crocodiles, a tiger, a "popotamus" and a lion, and even a "tremendously very bad mammoth". There are also magic powers and an orange ring, but sometimes, "something goes amiss".

It is our honor to introduce you to Capucine, the internet’s cutest kid and our newest star. If you haven’t yet become acquainted with Capucine then it’s high time you do. Capucine is four, lives in France, is a professional storyteller (this video will convince you) and a talented artist. Due to her incredible cuteness, Capucine has taken the internet by storm, capturing the hearts of people all over the world. We here at Edurelief are hooked too… just can’t get enough.

Anne (Capucine’s mother) and Capucine have decided to put her talents and fame to good use by helping children in Mongolia receive a better education. They have created a series of t-shirts, buttons, magnets, and postcards (coming) featuring the amazing world of Capucine. All the proceeds from these sales go to benefit “Capucine’s Library,” an idea we dreamed up with Anne where donations and sales from her merchandise would go towards one specific project reaching several hundred children in Mongolia. We will track her progress and provide photos, films, and results of her project.

Isn't she cute? And isn't she a hero?
