LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- An eight-year-old girl is on a mission to save Toys 'R' Us.

With help from friends at her elementary school in New Jersey, Delilah Jane Farrell Lattanzi, a third grader, has kicked off a campaign. A petition, posters and a letter to the store are just the beginning. She will also be fundraising this weekend with a lemonade stand in front of her house.

She says if Toys 'R' Us doesn't accept her fundraising money, she'll donate it to a children's hospital.

"I will always be a Toys 'R' Us kid," Lattanzi said. "My mom grew up with it, my grandmother grew up with it and I want my kids to! I can't imagine my kids not knowing what Toys 'R' Us is. It would just be mind-blowing."

A spokesperson says, "the outpouring of support, from both kids and adults, for Toys 'R' Us has been tremendous."
