For the last four years, Franklin Elementary in Vancouver, Washington has hosted “Kindness Week” to help spread kindness and one second-grader took on the challenge in a big way. Keoni Ching is only eight, but he decided to find a way to raise money to help pay off school lunch debt owed at his school and other local schools.
He and his parents came up with the idea for him to make custom bracelets and sell them for $5 each. And it was a success! Ching raised $4,015 and donated the money to eliminate outstanding school lunch debt at his school and gave $500 each to six other schools.
