Kindergartner’s Project Eliminates School Lunch Debt for All Classmates


When kindergarten student Kiki Hardee of Vista, California, learned that some of her classmates were behind on their lunch payments, she decided to take action by opening a cocoa and cookie stand to help out.

But, Kiki didn’t just raise enough money selling goodies to wipe out the debt at her own school. Instead, she raised more than $7,000, enough to pay off the lunch debt for every student in the entire school district.

Her efforts have had even more far-reaching effects, as other kids in her community are now stepping up, with plans to plant trees and feed the homeless -- among other things -- showing that kindness can be contagious.
