LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An energetic 8-year old sings as she strings together beads, having a little fun along the way.

Angelica Smith started making one-of-a-kind bracelets three years ago.

She heard about an opportunity to raise money for Children's Miracle Network, and her mom had an idea.

"When I was a little girl my mom taught me how to make bracelets," said Angelica's mom Deborah Smith, "I didn't sell them but I knew at 5 years old, I knew that was something she could easily do."

"I thought well this would be a nice idea so I started doing it but after I did it I just wanted to keep on making bracelets," said Angelica.

Angelica and her mom work on the bracelets together. They string together as many as they can in four months.

"We make a lot a day, we make like 20 a day or 50 a day," said Angelica.

All the bracelets they make are sold, and all the money is given to charity.

"Glass costs 10, and I believe normal bracelets cost 5," explained Angelica.

Angelica says she likes donating her time and money to charity, "Its fun to have an activity to do, and I also know that its going to be good going to charity," said Angelica. 

"To have a child with that giving a spirit and that much love it means a lot to parents," explained Deborah.  

In three years, they've raised more than $3,000 for a dozen different charities.
