She’s a tiny girl with a big dream. Acacia Woodley is a 12-year-old girl from Palm Bay, Fla. who was born without complete arms.

Woodley is in High Point promoting her unique "friendship benches" for the Furniture Market. The benches are a way to promote friendship and kindness.

“For whatever reason, if they're having a bad day, they can sit on the bench and let somebody know that they need a friend.”

Woodley’s mother said she already has benches in more than four dozen schools and they expect to sell a lot more. Woodley wants a bench in every school in the U.S. and Canada.

Bob Buckley talked to Woodley in the video above. For more information, visit Woodley’s website, Tiny Girl, Big Dream, Inc.
