A nice story. Life would be great if none of us ever grew up.

BRANDON, S.D. - An 8-year-old girl with a big heart and loose tooth found a creative way to help people displaced by the hurricanes.

Briton Nordmeyer sent her tooth to the Red Cross chapter in Sioux Falls, hoping the tooth fairy would leave money there instead of under her pillow.

The tooth poked a hole through the envelope and fell out, but her letter made it.

And after word spread of her generosity, a $500 check came in from an anonymous donor.

Briton had told her mother she wanted to do something for the children who lost everything.

"It's really nice to help them get new food, homes, schools, toys, lots of stuff to help them," Briton said.

Five hundred bucks? My teeth would've gotten them a measly 25c.

That must be inflation. The tooth fairy only gave me fifty cent pieces for mine.

Growing older is unavoidable. Growing up is optional.
