Lea Michele is always happy to lend a hand (literally!) to a good cause, and did just that Saturday, when she joined Candie’s for a day of shopping with five girls who are currently patients at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Michele (a Candie’s spokeswoman) met up with the ladies, all between the ages of 15 and 18, at Kohl’s in Los Angeles, giving them each a $500 gift card and goodie bags — and some of her style expertise.

“I’m excited,” she told PEOPLE before the event began. “It’s really awesome. Candie’s is such an amazing company, and I’m excited to be here honoring them, meet these girls and spend some time with them.”

Michele, who works with stylist Estee Stanley, was pumped to play stylist for a day, too.

“There’s a lot of stress when you’re having to shop for yourself,” she explained, “but shopping for other people, and helping others shop, is fun and stress-free. You get to focus on them, and help them find amazing stuff. So since I know the line well, I have a pretty good idea of what we’ll be picking out.”

After the event wrapped, Michele Tweeted about her inspiring day. “Thank you so much @Candies at @Kohls for an awesome morning,” she wrote. “Hi girls! Hope you had fun today!” Tell us: How are you giving back this holiday season?
