Good News: 11 Year-Old Raises Money For Nursing Home Residents' Wishes

(Arkansas) 11-year-old Ruby Kate spends a lot of time at nursing where her mother works as a nurse. While there, she learned that the residents are allotted $40 per month for "extras" - anything not covered under room and board.

She wanted to help, so she started a project and Facebook page called "Three Wishes for Ruby's Residents." Ruby Kate grabbed a notebook and went from room to room asking residents, "If you could have three wishes, what would they be?" They requested little things like fresh fruit, clothes that fit, haircuts and books, and visits with their pets that could not live with them.

Ruby Kate's mom started a GoFundMe page to help pay for the wishes. It has raised more than $90,000 for residents in 5 nursing homes in Arkansas.

"My ultimate goal is just to make elderly people happy."
