PORTLAND, Ore. - Kylie Totten is just 8 years old, but she already understands the importance of giving back.

Kylie recently had a ruptured appendix and spent several months in treatment at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.  While she was there, she received gifts for her birthday and some holidays.

To show her gratitude, Kylie started her own toy drive. She wants to brighten the lives of kids stuck in the hospital over the holidays.

She set a goal to collect 500 toys for Doernbecher kids. She’s already collected more than 700.
