Seven-year-old Sammy Nelson held a charity bake sale Feb. 1 in front of Jimbo’s at the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. Her bake sale supported the Emilio Nares Foundation (www.enfhope.org), which provides the families of children battling cancer with “information and life-enhancing programs and support.”

The fundraising effort was one of several of Sammy’s “year of good deeds.” Every year the Nelsons ask their children to do a number of good deeds to reflect the age they are turning that year. Other ways Sammy has given back as part of her seventh birthday philanthropic activities include: donating money to the Philippine typhoon victims; making a Thanksgiving basket for a local senior center; feeding the homeless downtown; and helping to purchase coffee for military personnel overseas.
