A 9-year-old little girl in Georgia is helping those less fortunate this Christmas. How she did it is amazing.

The fourth-grader says, “It’s been really hard but really fun.”

“What makes me most sad is when a child doesn’t have a mom and dad and loses everything they have because of a hurricane, earthquake or war. I don’t know what I would feel like if I lost everything I had and didn’t have my family. It would make me really sad and upset,” says Jordyn. “Giving them a gift would give them lots and lots of joy and let them know people love them!”
