You're never too young to know the true meaning of the season. Just ask Isabella who's been giving to the less fortunate in Rome since she was 2 years old.

Isabella, with the help of her sister Liliana and a bunch of her friends, collect toys for the Rome Rescue Mission. "We wanted to give back to children in the Rome community during the holiday season, while teaching Isabella the invaluable lesson of helping others," says mom Shannon Todora.

550 toys were collected the first year. Almost 750 came in last Christmas. This season, Isabella is hoping for even more and there's several places you can drop off your donation.
