EAGLE RIVER, Alaska -- An Eagle River girl is sending help to Haiti.
Twelve-year old Evelyn Sharratt-Ash's specialty is home-made lemonade.
She usually takes the winters off, but she wanted to help kids in Haiti when they need it the most.
She's selling hot chocolate and warm cookies, and plans to give the money she raises to the Red Cross to help people recovering after last week's earthquake.
Evelyn read about the disaster in the newspaper and said she knew she could help.
"So I thought it would just be nice to donate to Haiti because of all these earthquakes happening, and I felt really bad about it," Evelyn said.
Evelyn and her friends made $500 for their cause Monday.
