Our kid bought a TV for his room, so maybe we should take some pointers from this little girl's parents.

7-year-old Janelle Reitz got $300 from her grandpa for Christmas. And instead of buying a TV for herself, like our son did (we're gonna blame it on a hot case of pre-teen), she decided to donate it to the Grand Blanc Police Department. She loves police officers; she's dressed as one for Halloween for three years.

Not only that, but she had a specific use for the money in mind - she loves dogs, so she decided to give it to the K-9 unit. She got to meet Jimi and even played tug-of-war with him for a while.

It was her grandpa's intent for her to use the money to give back to the community - her sister gave her own Christmas money to Lapeer County Animal Control.

I need some parenting lessons, obviously. Nice job, Janelle!
