Girl gives 1,000 boxes of crayons to children's hospital

July 25, 2010 (PARK RIDGE, Ill.) Abby Enck, 8, of Crystal Lake has a slogan: "When life gives you lemons, color!"

So Sunday, Enck delivered 1,000 boxes of crayons to Advocate Lutheran General Children's Hospital in Park Ridge.

Enck first started donating crayons to the hospital last summer by raising money through her lemonade stand.

She chose Lutheran General because her 6-year-old brother Cameron has been a patient there since he developed cerebral palsy as a newborn.

This year, Abby Enck created lemonade kits and sold them to buy crayons for the hospital.
