Ga. Child Prefers Water Donations vs Gifts

DUBLIN, Ga. (AP) -- A Georgia girl asked people celebrating her second birthday not to give her any gifts. Instead, Jovi Van Norman asked for bottled water to donate to the Central Georgia Chapter of the American Red Cross.

The result was cases of water stacked higher than the 2-year-old. Emergency services associate Peggy Bentz told The Courier-Herald in Dublin that the request resulted in 623 bottles of water for the Red Cross.

Bentz says it's a proud moment when somebody that small wants to be part of something so big.

Bentz says there is still a need for more bottled water, as well as power drinks, and nonperishable food.

    Two years old ? Yeah right, I've never heard of a 2 year old requesting anything like that. You can hardly even talk that good and you're requesting something like that.

      Obviously, you have never met this child. She can probably talk better than you can.
