10-Year-Old Texas Girl Finds Christmas Present Early, Raffles it Off for Thousands for Troops Overseas [VIDEO]
A 10-year-old north Texas girl named Jordyn Self accidentally found her Christmas present recently, which is a collectible American Girl doll called ‘Saige.’ What she decided to do with it is pretty incredible for a young kid.
Jordyn’s elementary school had been sending care packages to troops overseas. But donations were running low and Jordyn knew the doll was expensive, so she asked her mom to return it and donate the money. Instead, they decided to start a raffle on Facebook. The tickets cost $1 each, and they’re choosing a winner at random later this week.
The doll retails for $110. But as of yesterday morning, they’d raised over $1,500. And someone posted on their Facebook page that their company will match the donations.
Also, Jordyn is being rewarded for her generosity. She and her mom were on the ‘Today’ show yesterday and the producers are sending her a replacement doll, plus one for her little sister.
If you want to buy tickets, the Facebook page is called Saige for Soldiers. The raffle runs through Saturday.
