Young girls raffle off hatchimals to help victims of Tennessee wildfire

Seymour, Indiana (WHDH) — Two little girls in Indiana felt so moved after seeing the massive wildfires in Tennessee that they’re raffling off their brand new Hatchimals to help the victims.

10-year-old Lariah Neal and her 6-year-old sister Daelyn Freese live in Seymour Indiana.

Their grandmother managed to snag them new Hatchimals, a hard to get toy this holiday season.

It is an interactive toy that emulates an animal hatching from an egg while kids play with it.

But after seeing the devastation in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, the girls couldn’t bear to keep the toys.

“To have children that would give up their toy that everybody wants,” said grandmother Kimberly Steltenpohl, “just, you know, spectacular.”

The girls have raised about $200 dollars so far but they’re hoping to collect much more.

The Hatchimals will go to raffle winners, with the proceeds going to the Red Cross.
