A Make-A-Wish volunteer is being honored for her efforts.

The Association of Fundraising Professionals is awarding Kalli Sizemore with the outstanding youth award. She raised $43,000 for Make-A-Wish last December by planning and hosting a benefit. She says volunteering is her calling.

"To see young children who don't have the same opportunities as I do really just tugs at my heart, that is my main goal," Sizemore said. "I want to try to get more involved with volunteering, raising money, and helping kids all around, not just in Montana."

Sizemore hopes to work for St. Jude's in the future, but right now, she's attending MSU Billings to become a teacher for special needs children. The awards will be given out on November 19, National Philanthropy Day.
