MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Three sisters from Plymouth, Minn., have raised nearly $4,000 for the homeless by sleeping outside in a box since November, their mother said.

Carrie Sewald-Hester wrote on her Facebook page Friday that her girls (11-year-old Debra, 9-year-old Danielle and 3-year-old Savanah) raised $3,985 and donated the money to Interfaith Outreach and Community Partners, an organization that helps 1,500 families in the Twin Cities.

The sisters slept in a cardboard box on the back deck of their family’s home from early November to Christmas Eve. The girl’s mother wrote daily updates on her girls’ condition, and they girls received donations from as far away as the Virgin Islands.
