This Girl Spent Her Birthday Helping Flood Victims
Most people probably think Ragin' Cajuns Running Back Elijah McGuire is the star of this picture, but it's actually the little girl on the right.
Her name is Gabby Latiolais, and it was her 10th birthday on August 16th. Unfortunately for Gabby, the floods came and devastated the state of Louisiana, essentially ruining her birthday.
Gabby is special though. Her birthday wish wasn't for a big party. All she wanted to do was help the flood victims. If you haven't noticed, Gabby isn't your average fifth grader.
The picture you see was taken in Youngsville. Gabby is from Carencro. When her parents asked what she wanted to do for her birthday, her wish was to help those in need.
Picture this. While the streets of the Highland Ridge neighborhood filled with more than 150 members of the Ragin' Cajuns Football team, Gabby weaved in and out of the massive men to lend a hand too. Standing right beside 6'4"-300 lb offensive linemen, you found a tiny girl with a giant heart.
Her parents raised her right. Children like Gabby give you hope for the future.
