RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) - Instead of getting presents for their birthday, twins from Richmond Hill are raising money for quake victims in Haiti.

Twins Katherine and Garrett Stigall, who just turned 8-years-old, raised $210 for the American Red Cross.

"We watched the news and saw how Haiti was getting worse and we saw they needed it more than us," said Garrett.

So for the twins birthday, they asked for donations for the Haiti relief fund instead of presents from family and friends.

"So they can get fresh water and food and shelter," said Katherine.

Friday, the twins handed over the money to the Red Cross.
