Kids Helping Kids -- Caragh Uses Her Artistic Talents to Help Others

CARAGH CHRISTIE: My name is Caragh Christie and I am five years old. I sell my paintings and drawings to help people.

REBECCA MAGNUS (Caragh's Mom): I try to inspire Caragh to understand why she's helping. For example, Hurricane Harvey, she had a hard time understanding why the flood was happening and how it affected other children. And we would kind of explain how would it feel if you have your house now, and then all of a sudden, you don't have your house anymore.

GADI SCHWARTZ, NBC NEWS
We’re here in Dickinson right now, you see there are families out here that are trying to get to safety.

MICHAEL MAGNUS (Caragh's Dad): And so, she thought about it for a minute, and she said, "I want to give away my pictures to help the little babies whose houses got hurt." And so every month or so, we've been doing a different fundraiser, supporting different causes.

R. MAGNUS:
She has a giving heart; she has a lot of empathy for people.

CHRISTIE:
Caragh’s pictures helping people this is me!

I am going to draw Red Nose’s pictures and at school I think I’m going to make a paper red nose. Like that.

CARAGH CHRISTIE:
You think that when you wear red noses it’s kind of funny but it’s really helping people.
