Nederland girl makes big donation "to the babies"

Child donates to family services

A six year-old girl from Nederland who has a big heart for babies, made a big donation to the Family Services of southeast Texas Women and Children’s Shelter.

Austyn Guidry started saving her change early last year and after saving $34.12, Austyn and her mother took to Facebook with her plea, where she raised $1,500 in less than a week.

Austyn presented her donation to the organization which would go to the needs of babies in the shelter.

This generous act began when the family's Nederland church gave Austyn an empty baby bottle to fill with spare change to return with a donation for Southeast Texas families in need.

'"I think we had more donations because she was a six year old, rather than someone as an adult,” said Andrea Guidry, the mother.”

Andrea says that Austyn’s goal for the next Christmas season will be $6,000.
