A 13-year-old teenager, Erin Bryness, has shown what it means to have a heart of gold. The teenager has been saving waste bottles and cans so that she can exchange them for $200 (N82,2960). She planned to give the money out to a charity called Joseph's House.
In her spare time, she would help mothers who had babies out of wedlock and single to babysit them. Erin used her $200 (N82,286) to buy 60 raffle tickets, Understanding Compassion reports.

Her decision came at a time when her family of four could have used the vehicle for their convenience.
“Joseph’s House is very important to me. They need the money more than I do. And if you saw those babies, you would have done the same thing.”
Erin’s mother said she cannot do anything about what her daughter did because it is her decision. She said:
“We never dreamed in a million years that Erin would win.”

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a 13-year-old boy, William Preston, did not like the way his mother was going through life's tough challenges as a single mother of three.
As a way to help his mother, William got a job as a land mower as part of a plan to get his mother a vehicle.
When the teen came home one day and told his mother that he had got her a car, the woman laughed it off and said “ya, right!”.
“No mum, I’m so serious I bought you a car. Come on we have to go.”
The mother stated that when he said that, she had mixed emotions of confusion and doubt as she asked him, “To where?”
