Friends of eight-year-old Ella Beaudry are giving to children fighting cancer. Ella, inspired by her mother Dawn, decided to ask her friends to bring a toy donation to her birthday party at American Girl Place in Chicago Oct. 21. When the party was over, Ella donated more than 30 toys to The Pediatric Oncology Treasure Chest Foundation.

When asked why she wanted to help the Treasure Chest Foundation, Ella said, “I wanted to make sick kids happy.”
