Lauren Glassberg has the story of young jewelry designers in Rockland County,

Little kids with big hearts are designing jewelry and using their creations to help other children.

When Cameron Stoltze was 4 and his sister Brielle was 2, they beaded a bracelet for their mom.

She got so many compliments, the kids made more and sold them for $20 each.

They raised $2,000 and donated the money to Blythedale Children's Hospital for kids presents and medical equipment.

Then they met Ramona Archibald, their friend Elias's grandmother who happens to be a jewelry manufacturer.

She loved what the kids were doing, and helped get the line into JCPenney.

Her grandson is now also helping with the designs. A portion of the proceeds of Nana's Crazy Monkeys will go to Jewelers for Children, which has raised more than $55 million for children's charities.

All three kids spoke Thursday about giving back at their school, St. Gregory's in Rockland County.

Cameron donated $1,000 in his first year alone. He says he got the idea for the name Nana's Crazy Monkeys because he and his siblings are always jumping on the bed.
