MORRISON, Colo. — Compassion can come in many ways and at any age.

After seeing the recent wildfire destruction in our state, 6-year-old Charlotte West is proof there is still good in the world.

"I told mommy that if they lost them they might be sad so I want them to feel happy and I’m giving them some stuffed animals," West told Denver7.

"She just asked me if any kids lost their homes. I told her there probably were some that did. Her biggest concern was, did they lose their stuffed animals in their blankets? Because those are the things that are most important to her," said Charlotte's mom, Christine.

Christine West reached out to the Grand Foundation to see if there was a need. West says she was told 10 to 15 kids "would love to have those teddy bears."

Using her allowance money, Charlotte went online and picked out 15 stuffed animals for those kids. She is even writing personal cards to children she's never met.

The stuffed animals should arrive by the end of the week.

"I’m so so proud of her already at age 6 having empathy that she does for others," Christine West said with pride of her daughter.
