More than a decade ago, Donna Alphonse and her family moved into a home built by Good News.

She says the gift changed her immediately.

"Every year I would ask, if I could be part of the Good News because basically I just wanted to be part of them just from a little girl, I was a very good little girl, I just wanted to be a part of them to be giving and not receiving," says Alphonse.

Now that she's 18, Donna got her wish.

This January, she volunteered with Good News the entire four weeks they were on her home island of St. Lucia.

"I just want to help everyone so they can have a better life," she says.
