Siblings Donate Money From Piggy Banks After Washington Landslide
Two youngsters in Washington were doing their part Friday to help raise money for first responders in the deadly landslide in Oso that killed at least 36 people.
Talon Lin, 7, and his 6-year-old sister Anya donated the entire contents of their piggy banks to help out, but they wanted to do even more.
So they set up a donation box in their parent’s restaurant with a sign reading, “Money for the Heroes.”
Customers responded with overwhelming generosity.
So far the children have raised more than $850.
Officials said some of the money would be used to buy new boots for first responders.
Search crews have been digging through deep mud and debris up to 70 feet deep looking for the missing.
President Obama was set to visit the area on April 22, the one month anniversary of the slide.
