PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Two kids in Pender County are taking a break from video games and dolls, and giving back. Dylan Minor, 7, and his sister Emma, 5, are raising money for people in Boston.

Their mom says the kids were upset when they heard about the Boston bombings and wanted to do something to help. 

"I felt very sad, because I was born in Boston, where a lot of the people were treated," said Dylan. He and his sister decided to take the money they were saving for an Xbox and put it towards the One Fund.

They have also been collecting money at two churches -- The Gathering, in Surf City and Topsail Baptist Church.

They hope to collect $1,000.
