PHILADELPHIA -

Even at six-years-old, a little girl knows the meaning of what the season of giving is all about.

Morgan Keeley spent some time at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia to stuff stockings for other children.

The six-year-old was born deaf and has had seven surgeries, including two for cochlear implants at the hospital.

After one of her operations, she received a gift basket of toys and treats. Now, she tells FOX 29's Lauren Cohn she wants other kids to have them too.

Her mom uploaded a video on UREPORT on myfoxphilly.com that showed her working hard to make sure it would be a happy holiday for other kids going through the same thing.

"She's amazing, inspiring, not only to us but to all lives she's touched in her six years," her mom, Julie Keeley, said.

Morgan and her mom delivered sand buckets to children over the summer and they'll pass the stockings out just before Christmas.

Morgan tells FOX 29 she is donating the stockings to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Care Network in Bucks County, which is an outpatient facility.
