Brooklyn & Bailey McKnight's Enviable (and Heartwarming) Family Vacation!
Jumping for Joy
Bailey McKnight and her family, who rose to fame on YouTube thanks to their popular CuteGirlsHairstyles channel, took a recent trip to South Africa -- not just to sightsee, but to also do some good! Now they exclusively share their family vacation photo album with PEOPLE. "I'd always wanted to go to Africa," says Bailey (at Cape Point Lighthouse in Capetown, South Africa).
Splitting Their Time
"We split our time in half. We went on some safaris and toured a little bit, but then we stopped by this hostel where we donated all these great toys and games and supplies," says Brooklyn (at Cape Point Lighthouse in Capetown, South Africa), who has her own hit Youtube channel with her twin sister.

"We've always had a thing for doing charity [and] service projects," says Brooklyn (with dad Shaun). "We did a service project like a year or two ago where we went to Peru and we built this school for a few weeks."
"Having adopted siblings, we're super into helping kids who need it," says Brooklyn (left with Bailey and sister Kamri in Capetown).
"We had two suitcases full of chalk and paper and jump ropes," says Brooklyn (right, in Capetown). "They had just had a big fire in the community nearby and tons of people had no home and supplies and we took them toothpaste and washcloths."
What a View!
"We didn’t know the fire had happened but we were so glad we could help them," says Bailey (left, in Capetown).
Cape of Good Hope

"When you're there, you realize there is so much you have that you don’t need. Don't be selfish. Focus on trying to help others," Brooklyn (far left with, from left, Rylan, Shaun, Bailey, Mindy and Kamri in Johannesburg) says of visiting South Africa.
Pay It Forward
"It's really easy to help others, so take the time to do it," says Bailey (right). "Help and be kind and spread love!"
