OKEMOS, Mich (WLNS) — When an 8-year old girl in Okemos learned about an opportunity to help local seniors, she jumped at the chance.
Samiya Ibragimova has been painting for a few years, and in November of 2020, a family friend asked if she would be willing to send some of her paintings and homemade cards to a local apartment complex in time for Christmas.
As Chivon Kloepfer explains in this week’s “Tell Me Something Good” report, not only did Samiya do that, she also started a project at the same time called “Make Some Smiles.”
6 News anchor Chivon Kloepfer spoke to Samiya and her mom Elnora and has more on this effort and how “Make Some Smiles” is now expanding.
