It looks like there’s hope for the next generation after all, thanks to wonderful children like this young girl here. 8-year-old Kayla Soto, of Temple City, California, recently asked her birthday party guests to forgo the tradition of buying her gifts to help celebrate her big day. Instead, she asked them to bring blankets for the city’s homeless.

According to the Daily Mail, Kayla’s mother Lili said her daughter made a goal to help the homeless every since she saw a woman shivering on the streets nearly two years ago.

“She looked down and she said, ‘Imagine if everyone brought a blanket,'” Lili Soto said of the moment she asked her daughter what she wanted for her birthday.

So Kayla’s parents wrote a message about blankets in the girl’s birthday invitations, which were headed: “Helping the homeless, one blanket at a time.”

Kaya and her family hope to collect 200 blankets with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Locals can bring a new or used blanket to the Temple City sheriff’s station on Las Tunas Drive by March 2.
