CHARLOTTE, N.C. — An 8-year-old girl is on a mission to help the homeless in our community with a simple gift -- a blanket.

She decided to start selling baked treats and asked her mom to help her create a GoFundMe account so she can raise money to buy blankets.

"I have all this stuff and I'm staying healthy and I have what I need to be able to survive, and I don't think most of the homeless will survive the winter because it's been really cold," she said.

Her goal is to raise $100 to buy 10 to 15 blankets.
