Boy's mistletoe profits going to Newtown

A 6-year-old from Olive Branch is trying to make a difference by helping a hurting community.

Collier Morgan has been to a number of places in southern Illinois to sell decorated mistletoe in mid December.

He sold the plants for $3 each, hoping to raise money for Christmas presents.

He made $25, but before he had the chance to buy anything he heard about the tragic shooting  in Newtown, Connecticut.

At that point, Collier changed his mind and decided to give the money to an organization that would help those affected by the shooting.

"I want to help out the people up there, and this is the only way I know how to help," said Collier.

Collier was able to rack up $20 in just 30 minutes on Sunday morning at Food Town in Olive Branch, where he was selling mistletoe.
