Sixth Grader Forgoes Birthday Presents to Help Veterans

By Jennifer Griswold. CREATED Nov 12, 2013

Bellevue, NE - A sixth grader's generosity came to light today. 12-year-old Olivia Graesser gave up birthday presents so that she could give to others.  

Instead of gifts, she asked people to donate money toward a pizza party for the Eastern Nebraska Veteran's Home. 

They got together and had that pizza party on Tuesday night. 

Graesser said, "I've been here a lot, and everybody's really nice so I thought they deserved it." She went on to say, "It makes me feel good that they're happy."
