Seven year old Sage Friedman is parting with some of her toys....
The Florence mass girl is selling some of her toys, books and clay sculptures she makes to raise money for the people devastated by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
"It's pretty hard to sell toys and books but not hard to make the sculptures." explained Sage Friedman.
She came up with the idea after learning about the disaster in her first grade class.
"Saturday morning she woke up and said mommy I really feel like I want to help the people in Japan. She said mommy I have a lot of toys I could sell my toys and send the money to the people in Japan." Mother Jennifer Friedman added.
They remembered "shelter box", an organization that helped out after last years earthquakes in Haiti and Chili. ....
"They sent huge boxes with tents, sheets, blankets stoves...coloring books and crayons for the kids" said Friedman.
Sage's letter explaining her plan was sent out on a mass e-mail.....And it took off. Her mom said a lot of people said please don't ' send anything we want you to keep your toys.
Sage has already reached her 1-thousand dollar goal.
"She hit her goal by Monday night...by Monday night she made over a thousand dollars."
Sage's Mom helped hook her up with Shelter Box and created a website
so it would be easier for people to donate.
They're still collecting donations for the next few weeks if you want to contribute you can go to her website by visiting the link to the left.
Sages new goal is to top $2,000.
ABC 40 will let you know how it turns out.

And then her mommy called the press, and soon garnered the family in praise, and attention fulfillment.
Sounds like an attention whore in the early stages. It would have been nice if they just did it privately instead of throwing a parade.
