A Massachusetts girl declined birthday gifts in order to raise money for a teacher who risked her life during the mass shooting in December at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., MyFoxBoston.com reported. 

Natalie Barros, 10, of Tyngsborough, Mass., decided she wanted to help teacher Kaitlin Roig after hearing Roig barricaded her first-grade students in a bathroom after gunman Adam Lanza opened fire inside the Connecticut elementary school. 

"I set out to have Kaitlin have a smile on her face again," Barros told MyFoxBoston.com. "I really wanted that to happen."

Barros collected donations at her birthday in hopes of sending Roig and her fiance to Disney World.  

Roig learned of Barros' efforts, and the two met over ice cream last week. 

"Who she was in person was beyond what's the act she did," Roig told MyFoxBoston.com. "It's just so clear that she is full of life and love and happiness, and it just radiates out of her."
