Bronx sisters sing for Haiti donations

Three young sisters set up outside a Bronx subway station to collect donations for Haiti earthquake relief efforts.

The sisters - Sasan, Elsa and Ashley Tsegai - are between the ages of 12 and 20 and have no direct connection to Haiti, but felt the need to do their part. They held homemade signs while singing inspirational songs to attract donations from strangers.

"We all feel connected due to the fact that if something happened to America, we know other countries would help us," Ashley Tsegai says.

So far, they've raised more than $200 and will donate the money to the Red Cross on behalf of their church. They hope to raise $1,000.
