When Stella first saw what the hurricane did to New York she decided to raise money for the people affected by selling all sizes of decorated mistletoe branches outside her Dallas home.

After she raised $2,000 the family flew to New York, and on March 14 little Stella presented a check to Christopher LaBianco, Greater New York chief development officer, who accepted on behalf of the Red Cross, reports the Red Cross.

Stella plans on working with her friends this year to raise even more money for the Red Cross.
