Ten-year-old Annie Tacha wanted to raise $1,000 to help the Hall County Sheriff's K-9 unit purchase a bulletproof vest.
Chief Deputy Chris Rea asked her to consider raising $5,000 for a new dog.
Annie decided to raise enough money for the dog and the vest.
Through car washes, walking dogs, and talking to reporters, she has now raised more that $14,000!
This money will be used to purchase two dogs.
Through her efforts, Annie has inspired other children to raise funds. One unnamed girl brought in $20.50 that she had raised at her lemonade stand.
