Albany - - An eight year old Albany girl did something very mature for her age and she's proud of it.

Hannah Sims celebrated her birthday last week by doing something for a good cause.

Instead of asking for birthday presents, she asked for money. But not for her. She donated all of her birthday money to the Flint Riverquarium. 

"I wanted it to stay open. It means a lot to me. I was so excited and proud of myself because I'd done a really good thing," Sims said.

Sims raised a total of $110. She just got a letter in the mail saying thank you.

This isn't her first experience giving to a good cause. For her seventh birthday, she donated to the Children's Miracle Network.
