12-YEAR OLD BIRTHDAY WISH - You don’t run across many kids that would give up their Birthday to help others. 12 year old Brooklyn Bailey attends Eastland Middle school and saw many kids didn’t have socks to wear to school. She put boxes out at local merchants throughout the county and collected over 800 pair of socks. Brooklyn will distribute the socks between local schools. Her Birthday wish came true and she wants to thank all who helped her by donating the socks. Happy Birthday, Brooklyn!
