ARLINGTON, Wash – Little Saraiah saw the deadly mudslide in her community and knew she had to help.

That’s when the idea struck, she would make and sell 'Oso Strong' bracelets.

“Just to show love and encourage others to do the same,” said Saraiah’s mother Angie.

Angie took to social media to share her daughter’s efforts, posting photos to Twitter and Instagram.

It worked.  So far Saraiah has had 31 unique orders for a total of 89 bracelets.

“She has raised $170.80 so far, but has much more in pledged donations coming in,” said Angie.
