Big Heart Comes in Small Package

Olivia holding check

Sometimes it is the smallest of individuals who have the biggest heart. Olivia Tharp from Bartonville is a perfect example of this. Six year old Olivia saw her little brother wasn’t feeling well due to a cold and decided she wanted to help sick children. “I thought I should give my money toward the kids that are really sick,” Olivia shared. She told her parents, Justin & Jessica, about her idea and they began giving her a variety of tasks around the house that she could be paid for. An inspiration to members of her family, they also began matching the money Olivia had saved. Olivia delivered her allowance totaling $201 to the Children’s Hospital of Illinois Foundation. After learning about the many ways the hospital helps sick children, Olivia decided she wanted her donation to be used to purchase toys, books and games that can make a child’s stay at the hospital a little easier. Thank you, Olivia, for having such a big heart and thinking of the kids at Children’s Hospital of Illinois!
