St. Petersburg, Florida - National Superhero Day is this Sunday and to celebrate the "holiday" The Morning Showon 10 News asked you to tell us about your superhero kids.

We introduceyou to one who is very busy making a huge difference in her community.

Superheroes come in all shapes and sizes. In this case, it's 13-year-old named Lila Baker who is very busy helping her community.

Her mother Denise, sent us a long letter saying quote, "Lila has been trying to get the word out to others that they, too, can make a difference in the lives of people in our community."

"She does a lot to help out others and I just thought it was really special because you don't see that a lot."

They came on The Morning Show Friday to tell us all about her superhero powers. One of her favorites is helping cancer patients. She's donated her hair not once, not twice, but 4 times to Locks of Love.

"It's really important because it makes you feel like good inside and it makes everyone feel happy," says Lila.

But her biggest project was creating "Bags of Sunshine" to comfort kids at St. Joseph's Children's Hospital.

In August of 2012, this Pine View Middle School student started collecting games, puzzles, arts and crafts kits, crayons and other goodies.

By January of this year, Lila collected more than 1,800 items to deliver to the children.

"I just love helping people and seeing how happy it makes them afterwards."

It's a superhero quality she hopes to spread to others so they'll make a difference, too.
