Birthday Girls Give Gifts to Children

Posted: Updated:

Children at Sanford's Children's Hospital received a precious gift today...

One that came from the generosity of two nine-year-old girls.

This is Jessa and Carrie.

They're best friends whose birthdays are just a week a part.

But instead of asking for presents of their own, they decided to donate books to the children's hospital.

"We thought that books would help them like, go into an adventure and think about that instead of their surgery," says Carrie Hart.

The girls had a joint birthday party and asked their friends to bring books instead of presents.

The reaction on this little girl's face was priceless.

Jessa and Carrie say they really like giving and would rather see others receive gifts instead of themselves.

"I decided maybe if we have books to read it would be fun to hear stories and hear all these fun stories that they have and I decided that our present would be a smile," says Jessa Lee.

Carrie's birthday was May 12 and Jessa's was May 18.

Due to a busy summer, they were finally both able to get together today to bring their gifts to the children.
