A Birthday to Share

July 22, 2010 Updated Oct 17, 2009 at 10:28 PM EDT

An Endwell girl shares her birthday spirit with the less fortunate.

This is Brooke Bart's 15th birthday party, but none of these gifts are for her.

Instead, she's asked all of her guests to provide gifts for boys and girls in need this holiday season.

All the presents are going to Broome County's annual Christmas Giving Program for teens.

Last year, she donated 25-hundred dollars worth of gifts.

She hopes to beat that this year.

"It's a really great thing to do and it feels amazing when you do it and more people should do stuff like this," says Bart.

Bart says she plans on holding these parties every year until she goes off to college, then she hopes her younger brother will follow in her footsteps.

Anyone who would like to donate to the Catholic Charities can call (607) - 729 - 9166.
