LUNA PIER, Mich. -

This year there is a very special stand raising money for a very worthy cause at Luna Pier's annual citywide garage sale.

Haley, Danielle, Kaitlin and Kendell were hard at work Saturday selling water, cookies, chips and sloppy joes, trying to raise money to buy a tombstone for their parents.

In 2011, their dad died in a car accident and this year they lost their mom as well.

Currently, they are living with their grandparents and money is tight, so that is what gave 9-year-old Haley the idea.

Besides selling sloppy joes, they are also accepting donations as every little bit helps.

The girls planned to stay out until 7 p.m. or 8 p.m. Saturday. To donate online here.
