All this 12-year-old girl wanted for her birthday was to give gifts to others. Emma Donkor has been suffering from neurofibromatosis since she was eight, so she's spent a lot of time in hospitals and knows how cold they can get. For her birthday, she decided she didn't want gifts for herself. Instead, she went on Facebook and asked people to donate silly socks so she can give them to other hospital patients.
To cheer up her fellow patients, Emma asked Facebook users to donate socks to her special fundraiser, in honor of her birthday this year.
“She said giving back to the other kids makes her happy,” Emma’s mom, Rebecca Donkor of Higganum, Connecticut, told ABC News. “She has a strong social media presence and thankfully people back her, and help her spread joy.”
