ST. LOUIS, Mo. – A little girl with big dreams of helping others is using her birthday as an opportunity to give to those in need.

Last year, 5-year-old Ava told her family she wanted to donate $5 of her birthday money to charity. Touched by her generosity, the community started donating money to her cause. Soon, she raised over $5,000 and helped feed the hungry in the St. Louis, Missouri-area, where she lives.

For her sixth birthday, Ava has even bigger goals. According to her GoFundMe page, she hopes to raise $10,000 to buy Christmas presents for sick kids at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
