Instead of asking for a big, flashy party for her sixteenth birthday, one girl asked her friends to donate money to a cause to help kids in need.
California teen Nubia Wilson asked family and friends to donate to add a fifth grade classroom to a school just outside Ethiopia’s capital.
She has raised over $2,000 in just a month. Her new goal is $10,000.
Wilson hopes to hand deliver the donation this summer when she volunteers at the school.
