Reese Osterberg decided to pay it forward after she received the gift of a lifetime.
Her community heard about the loss – and she received so many donations she was able to help out 50 other kids who lost their homes.
“I had a binder of cards at first,” Reese said, “and now it’s 25,000.”
Baseball cards, baseballs and other memorabilia were given out Tuesday afternoon.
“It’s the best day I’ve ever had, it’s more than awesome probably,” she said.
“When I was in the hospital, people gave me things that made me happy,” she said. “So I want to give them things that make them happy.”
