CBS 2 Heroes -Adelie Burton

Updated: Tuesday, April 15 2014, 11:24 PM CDT
When 8-year old Adelie Burton sees the homeless outside of the Iowa City Library, she not only says hello, she gives them gift cards.   She says, "I  just remember when I gave it to her, she said 3 or 4 times, she called me an angel."
  Adelie's mother, Traci, set up a Facebook page, then a page for friends to donate.  Adelie asked them to give to the fund, rather than buy her a birthday present this year.   So far, she's raised more than $300.  "I think, 'I've got a house, and I've got food to eat,' and like they probably deserve that, too.  They're humans just like me."
If you'd like to help Adelie, go to her Facebook page
