CENTRAL, LA (NBC33) — Emily Rodrigue is a 10-years-old with a lot of initiative.
She raised up to $100 in only an hour and a half selling lemonade. Her class at Victory Academy was only supposed to bring in two dollars, but she thought they could do more.
Red Cross Representative Nancy Malone said it's wonderful to see this type of philanthropy in a child this young.
Emily's Proceeds went to help people in Japan.
On Tuesday, Emily is continuing her selfless works by donating some of her hair to Locks of Love.
