8-Year-Old Pays Off Lunch Debt for His Entire School by Selling Keychains


When 8-year-old Keoni Ching found out that several of his classmates at his Vancouver, Washington, school didn't have enough money to pay off their cafeteria debts, he made a bunch of keychains and started selling them at $5 a pop. By the time he was done, he'd raised $4,015--enough to erase all the cafeteria debt at his entire school and six others as well.

His mom April says that people from as far away as Rhode Island and Minnesota bought Keoni's keychains after they heard about his mission.
