    A young girl sent a heart-warming message to Arlington, Texas, tornado victims.

    Cheyenne Jenkins, a 7-year-old girl, sent a note that read, "I'm sorry for what hit your house" and a few dollars of tooth fairy money to Arlington City Hall after seeing images of damaged homes on TV.

    Several tornadoes ripped across northern Texas on April 3, 2012, causing serious damage to homes, vehicles and businesses.

    The tornado that struck Arlington was rated an EF-2. It carved a 4.6-mile path through Kennedale and Arlington with a path width of 150 yards.

    The money from Cheyenne will be sent to Mission Arlington, which has helped with donating food and volunteers.

    Donations for Arlington, Texas, tornado victims can also be sent to the American Red Cross or The Salvation Army.
