According to proud mom Abby Koren, her 5-year-old daughter, Penelope, is no stranger when it comes to helping others. The youngster has tirelessly worked to raise funds for a variety of charities. On the cusp of her fifth birthday, the thoughtful tyke asked not for gifts, but instead requested that donations be made to St. Jude's Children's Hospital. That effort resulted in more than $1,800. The energetic youngster also participated in a Trike-A-Thon for St. Jude's, and in May put forth an effort to assist Homes for Our Troops.
