Ella Russell is a kindergarten student in Maryville, Tennessee. Each year she donates part of her birthday monty to a worthy cause. This year she decided to buy fresh drinking water for people impacted by Hurricane Harvey. It happened because she saw coverage of the storm on TV, and asked, "Mommy, what can we do?"

Ella put ten dollars toward the purchase of water. Then her Mom, Jennifer Perkins, posted her campaign on social media inviting others to chip in and help. That ten dollars turned into about $280, enough to buy146 cases of water for hurricane victims. It was taken to a local church for shipment to Houston. Now the family hopes Ella's generosity will inspire others.
