    1st Grader raises $1,500 for her School's Giving Tree

    My daughter, 7 year old Karlee Albertson had an idea while playing in her toy room that she wanted to raise money for the poor. She came to me saying she wanted to raise money for the poor and that she was going to talk to her teacher and her principal about what she could do to raise money. After some discussion with her teacher, it was decided that she would paint nails to raise money for her school's Giving Tree which has the needs of her fellow students on it. A GoFundMe page was set up and donations started coming in. Before the day of the nail painting, Karlee had already raised over $600 and as of this iReport, she has raised $1,500 for her school's Giving Tree and fellow students in need. She says that when she grows up she wants to boost spirits. Helping people makes Karlee feel good she said, and that she learned that if you help people, they will help you.
