I certainly wasn't as concerned with the well-being of my fellow classmates, like Cayden Taipalus is.
Cayden saw that his friend get a cheese sandwich instead of a hot lunch due to an account shortage. And it bothered him.
In fact, according to Amber Melke-Peters, Cayden's Mom, it bothered him all the way home. He asked her how he could help his friend so he'd always have a hot lunch.
But it's not like Cayden was content to just ask other people for money, he also did his part by recycling bottles and cans to raise some money himself.
“I am so very proud of my son. He is only 8 years old and to grasp the concept around this is just amazing in my eyes. He has a heart of gold.” His mom said.
