Aquarium of Niagara celebrates local girl who dedicated birthday to fundraising

Niagara Falls

NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB)–A young Buffalo girl is being honored today for her generosity in the community.

Charlotte Johnson recently turned 6-year-old, and for her birthday, she wanted to do something special for the animals at the Aquarium of Niagara 

She asked people to donate for the aquarium for her birthday instead of giving her gifts. 

Charlotte ended up raising $750, and today, the aquarium paid her back for her kindness.

She got a behind-the-scenes tour of the aquarium, and even got the chance to bond with one of the sea lions!

Her parents tell us sea lions are one of her favorite animals.

Officials at the aquarium say the young girl’s act of kindness is an example of the spirit of people in Western New York!
