Each year we look forward to picking out a Christmas tree and getting into the holiday spirit, especially as a kid. For 5-year-old Mallory Kate Hall of Cumming, Georgia, it is beyond meaningful. 

The kindergartner decorates two trees each year which she dedicates to her anonymous heart donor. According to ABC News, Hall received a transplant in December of 2014 at the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

ABC News reported that the second tree represents the life of the organ donor (and their fifth family member). Mallory will add an ornament to it each year along with the one she received the day of her surgery.
