Laurie Woolever was not surprised when her six-year-old daughter asked for lots of shoes for her birthday. The little girl with red hair and blue eyes is not a fashionista. She is simply passionate about giving, and, because of that, 60 youngsters at the Children’s Home in Tampa will have new shoes as a result.
Instead of birthday gifts from friends and family last year, Savannah collected food for animals at the local Humane Society of Tampa, Florida.
Next year, she already decided, she wants toys. But she will give all of them away for children in need.
“She was always a really sweet kid, doing thing for others,” her mom, a teacher, told channel 9 news.
When her parents took her to Walmart to buy the shoes, Savannah was given a check for $250 from two of the store’s managers to buy even more shoes.
