WORCESTER (CBS) – A Sterling first grader is wise and generous beyond her years because this year, everything on her birthday list was for someone else.

Seven-year-old Sydnie Nelson celebrated her birthday by giving to those in need.

For her birthday, she told her family she has everything she needs and instead, asked them to buy things to keep people warm this winter.

Sydnie donated 26 sets of pajamas, 14 sheets and a lot of blankets to Abby’s House in Worcester. The charity provides housing and assistance for women and children.

“Sydnie has a heart of gold, she always has,” her mother Kristen Nelson told WBZ-TV. “She’s always giving everything she has, best share-er ever with her sisters.”

Sydnie says giving back makes her feel good inside.
