Lubbock Girls Donate Birthday Money to Habitat For Humanity

Imagine giving up your birthday presents to help others. That's exactly what two Lubbock girls did Tuesday.

Instead of asking for gifts, five year-old Mallory Bothun and eight year-old Mackayla Morwood asked for money. On Tuesday, they donated that birthday money, $785 of it, to Habitat For Humanity.

"I just have a good feeling inside that I'm helping others," said Mackayla Morwood and Mallory Bothun.

NewsChannel 11 matched the girls' donation and gave $1,000. The money will be used to build a park in the Habitat For Humanity neighborhood in the 2200 block of Duke.
