M'VILLE GIRL RAISING TONS OF MONEY!
When Hailey Perryman's Kool-Aid stand closes this week, the 11-year-old Merrillville girl hopes to have collected at least $6,500 for Riley Hospital for Children. If she reaches the goal, Hailey will have collected a total of $20,000 for the Indianapolis children's hospital since she started the annual fundraiser in 2008! Hailey's fundraiser began at noon Monday as she pulled her wagon through the Young America subdivision to collect change.
The Kool-Aid stand is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. through Friday at Merrillville Fire Station No. 2, 7905 Taft St. There is no set price for Kool-Aid. People are asked to provide a donation of their choice.

(You can call me naive, but I believe it!)
So what did she finally answer?... "We genuinely enjoy each other's company"! Naturally, I wasn't satisfied with such a simple answer so I went to google. Google's answer: empathy.
