Caitlyn at 9!

GiftsToGive_April3-2015 008Last Saturday morning we met a most remarkable girl, who did a most amazing thing!

We asked her Mom for details: “Caitlyn is a third grader at Pulaski Elementary School and she recently celebrated her 9th birthday. Caitlyn decided that she wanted to ask her friends to donate toys or clothing to GiftsToGive rather than receive gifts for herself. Through volunteering at Gifts to Give with her family, Caitlyn has realized the importance of giving to others”

Caitlyn says: “There are so many needy children with no special toys. I am lucky to have more than I ever wanted. These children are very brave. I wish that these toys will give them a happy surprise on their birthday!

Jim Stevens, our CEO had this to say: ” To experience the pure altruism and connectedness of this extraordinary nine year-old is a testament to her parents. I think Caitlyn is a bright and shining light and makes all of us at GiftsToGive want to be better and do more. When we hear people talk about the problem with kids today, we’re going to interrupt them and tell them a story about Caitlyn.”
