Colorado Girls Get Help to Pay Court Judgment Over Cookie Gi

DENVER (AP) - Two teenagers whose anonymous gift of cookies sent a frightened woman to the hospital - costing the girls $930 in medical claims - have gotten donations to cover the bill and vowed Thursday to "keep giving."
"We aren't discouraged by this," said Taylor Ostergaard after receiving a donation.

"We felt sorry for her and we still feel sorry," Jo Zellitti added. "We didn't want to cause this lady any harm at all."

p.s. I think the girls intended well. I also think they were STUPID in the manner they went about it. And hearing one on radio leaving out so many pertinent details can only lead me to believe that they have caught the bug of their 15 minutes.
