HUDSONVILLE, Mich. — A picture of a West Michigan girl and her Barbie car is making the rounds on Facebook, Fox17 reports. While the picture is adorable, it’s the little girl’s actions that is pulling on the heart-strings of everyone who sees it.

In response to the Walker-Vu family’s overnight fire that gutted their Hudsonville house, considered a total loss, 4-year-old Becca Vanzyll decided to help them out. She loaded up her Barbie car with her birthday and Christmas presents, and she dropped them off for them. The Walker-Vu family, who lives down the road, have three little girls.

Fox17 explains that the Hudsonville community isn’t sitting back. Residents rallied by sending cards, toys, even beating their GoFundMe page goal by more than $2,000. It was Becca’s action that brought a tear to the Walker-Vu girl’s Grandma’s eye.

“I cried, I got teared up,” Sue Walker told Fox17, “It was unbelievable, for the little girl to donate her own toys and items of hers to three little girls that she doesn’t even know. She’s a special little girl.”
