8-year-old donates 7 bikes to Salvation Army

PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - An 8-year-old girl has led the way in

getting seven bicycles donated to the Salvation Army in Pascagoula.

It started when Madison Scott found out her school was having a

cookie dough sale with a grand prize of a new bicycle. Madison told

her mom she wanted to win the bike so she could donate it. "Jesus

just put it on my heart," Madison explained Friday afternoon while

standing outside the Salvation Army in Pascagoula.

Madison sold the most cookie dough and won that first bicycle.

She also collected more than $100 in donations for another bicycle

and had friends and family members pledge five more bikes to

contribute to her cause.
