NORTH PALM BEACH, Fla. - Kayla and her brothers are sorting through dozens of DVD movies for kids. Kayla will be donating them to South Florida hospitals. She was inspired by her youngest brother Ethan, who has health problems, including juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
"My brother he's been through surgeries and he's been to the hospital a million times and since and he's really inspired me and lifted my spirits up," Kayla says.
Kayla noticed when Ethan and the other children were in the hospital, they got bored with the few movies that were available for them to watch. A month ago, she started Kayla Cares 4 Kids. "It will help them pass the time instead of just doing nothing, " she says.
How many DVDs has Kayla collected so far? Would you believe over 700 of them which will be going to children in area hospitals. "I am super psyched and I can't wait to get even more, " she says.
The Palm Beach Gardens Elementary student is getting support from area businesses that have drop boxes to collect the DVDs. Even local politicians like Representative Patrick Rooney and Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater are hearing about Kayla's mission.
"It will make them happier to have a bunch of DVD's', I would be overjoyed, " says Kayla.
