Teen donates hundreds to Children's Miracle Network


The Columbus Children's Miracle Network is now $700 richer. Bria Kalpen, who is just 15 years old, has been raising money for the Children's Miracle Network since she was five years old.
She began her donations by collecting pennies, and has upgraded her community service to a program she created called "Change for Children".
Bria Kalpen, Miss Rocket City's Outstanding Teen, told News Leader Nine, "I was very motivated to do this because I saw how much the Children's Miracle Network is doing for children in hospitals and how they have helped so many children and saved so many lives. I want to be a part of an organization like that."
Bria also donated stuffed bunnies to the kids in the hospital.  She says she will continue to raise money through "Change for Children" for years to come.
