 I love when our good news story has to do with kids… 

Daken, a 5th grader found out his classmate had a pretty large lunch bill at school.. not because the kid ate a lot… but the kid’s family couldn’t really afford it… but what do you do when your child needs to eat! As the school year is wrapping up, Daken decided he was going to help pay for his classmates lunch bill. 

Daken videoed himself saying “I’m challenging friends and family and businesses to donate to this cause…” Then he explained his classmates’ lunch debt and posted it on his mom’s Facebook. 

Daken SURPASSED his goal and raised over $75,000. Needless to say he paid off his buddies lunch debt and received an award from his school for his selflessness as well!
