Eight-year-old learns to think big

Jayden Perez, eight, of Woodland Park, New Jersey, wanted to donate his Christmas toys this year to kids in Puerto Rico. He knew about the hurricane, and was worried they might not get anything. But his mom recommended that he think bigger, so they ended up holding a toy drive.

They posted a video asking folks to donate toys, and set up a makeshift donation center in their front yard. People in their area dropped off hundreds of toys, and folks online also got involved. One man in Pennsylvania said he had a trailer full of toys his community donated. At last count, Jayden had collected over 1,000 toys for kids in Puerto Rico, and they're still coming in.
