PARSONS, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas girl has helped raise money to build a home in Haiti by selling her homemade gift cards.

Seven-year-old Isabelle Redford, of Parsons, has raised more than $15,000 through card sales, and sales of her art work, toys, clothes and baked goods.

Isabelle's parents had performed mission work in Haiti and explained some of their experiences to Isabelle.

Her first home she helped build was in Tiatayn, Haiti, in Hope Village.

She raised $10,000 for part of a four-apartment complex for six orphans to live and a house mother.

The home was named Isabelle Redford's House of Hope. A second home is scheduled to begin construction soon in Ghana or Kenya, Africa.
