Leave It To Kids ...

From the AP:

8-Year-Old Girl Sends Tooth to Red Cross

Wed Oct 12, 6:54 AM ET

BRANDON, S.D. - An 8-year-old girl with a big heart and loose tooth found a creative way to help people displaced by the hurricanes.

Briton Nordmeyer sent her tooth to the Red Cross chapter in Sioux Falls, hoping the tooth fairy would leave money there instead of under her pillow.

The tooth poked a hole through the envelope and fell out, but her letter made it.

And after word spread of her generosity, a $500 check came in from an anonymous donor.

Briton had told her mother she wanted to do something for the children who lost everything.

"It's really nice to help them get new food, homes, schools, toys, lots of stuff to help them," Briton said.

Faith in humanity, momentarily restored.
