An Arkadelphia youth has decided to put her own wants to the side and her creative juices to work to assist someone less fortunate than her.
Kenley Lamm, 10, has decided to donate her proceeds from her slime sales to the American Red Cross to assist those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
According to Lamm, the booth will be open in the Commercial Building each day until Saturday. She is selling her slime based on the size.
“Some are big and they are three or 2 dollars, some are pretty little and they are 75-cents to a dollar,” said Lamm.
Lamm uses glue and liquid starch as her key ingredients to making the slime.
“You can add pretty much anything into it but food and you can’t eat it,” Lamm explained.
The idea for a booth came when Lamm was trying to sell her slime at school. Her grandfather, Larry Tucker, jokingly suggested to her that she should get a booth and sell her slime at the fair.
“I took that idea very seriously,” said Lamm.
She then gathered and bagged up as much slime as she had to bring to the fair. After witnessing the aftermath of the recent hurricanes, Lamm came to the conclusion that she wanted to do something to help them.
Although Lamm doesn’t have a specific goal for how much she would like to raise, she does wish to sell as much slime as she can during the week.
Lamm believes her efforts are very important.
“They have lost everything. I thought it would be better, instead of me spending it on something else that I wanted, to spend it on something else that they needed,” Lamm said.
Lamm is also a part of Clark County 4H. When she is not creating her slime, Lamm enjoys working with her pigs and goats.

She is the daughter of John Lamm and Haley McClure.
