Sophie is 8 years old and decided to take to the streets to perform with her violin. Not because her family is needy, but because she wants to help a family in Juneau, Alaska. Sophie was one of the onlookers as family's home burned. Wanting to do something for them, she took her violin to the streets of Juneau with her mom close by watching. In only six days Sophie managed to raise $1,800 for the family! Told ya that's a kid to be proud of! DB
