Birthday girl trades in presents for coats

BECKLEY (WVVA) -- One of the first things that comes to mind when you think of kid birthday parties are probably presents, but one local 9-year-old is trading in her gifts for coats.

Madison Tichnell asked people to bring her coats instead of presents to her birthday party at MacArthur Skating Rink Saturday.

She's going to donate them to a homeless shelter in hopes that someone will enjoy the warmth this winter.

Her goal is to have 100 coats for all ages by November 15.

If you'd like to help out Madison, you can contact her mom, Christa Tichnell, at 304-573-8917.
