Siblings Donate Funds From Piggy Banks After Washington Landslide

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff,"  two siblings donate their piggy banks to help first responders after the Washington landslide. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

The grim death toll from the massive landslide in rural Washington rose Monday to 24 people, and the discovery of three more bodies means the list of those confirmed killed likely will rise soon, authorities said.

But emergency workers got a much-needed surprise on Sunday in Oso  in the form of 7-year-old Talon Lin, and his 6-year-old sister Anya.  The siblings visited the scene with two very special gifts.

Their piggy banks. And it was their own idea, too.

"I decided to give it to the people who need help for the mudslide,” Talon said.

Officials say the money will buy new boots for first responders, but it's already meant much more than that.
