A 12-year-old girl in the rural town of Mobile, Alabama has inspired people all throughout the country after she baked nearly 2,000 cinnamon rolls to raise money for church donations that would then be given to other charities around the world.

The young girl, Meredith Allen, baked the cinnamon rolls as a part of her local church’s competition where young boys and girls would compete in offering the heaviest gifts, per The Alabama Baptist. Originally, the boys held dominance over the competition, winning five straight years in a row.

Meredith worked hard last year to make sure the girls would be able to pull out a win, making $800 through baked goods and converting that money, along with $200 of her own money, into pennies. The hard work paid off and Meredith and the girls were able to cinch their first win.

Through her sales, the young girl was able to raise a remarkable $2,610 for her offering and allowed the girls to once again beat out the boys. The money is given to their church, the First Baptist Tillmans Corner, and then from there given to causes like a Send Network project in Puerto Rico and a missionary family in Southeast Asia.
