A Kindergartner Raised Money To Pay For Her Friends' Milk

This little girl's story will restore your faith in humanity.

Two weeks ago, a grandmother in Michigan found her five-year-old granddaughter counting the money in her Arctic Cat piggy bank. At first, she thought Sunshine was just playing, but when she put some of the money into her backpack, her grandmother asked what she was doing with it.

As it turns out, Sunshine was bringing milk money to a friend, who didn't have any. Since Sunshine had been saving money for a Snowmobile, she thought she could help out.

After bringing money to one friend, Sunshine realized that many other kids didn't have milk money either. She wanted to keep helping, but her $30 would only go so far. Unsure of how to proceed, her grandma, Jackie Oelfke, promised Sunshine they'd figure out how to help her classmates anyway.



Oelfke then posted a tearful video describing her granddaughter's kind actions on Facebook, and a domino effect of goodwill kicked in. Facebook messages poured in from friends and family who wanted to donate, so a GoFundMe was set up to streamline Sunshine's "Milk Money Mission."

"Sunshine is five and doesn't grasp the concept of the HUGE impact she is making, but we all do," Oelfke wrote in a Facebook post. Since she doesn't quite get what's going on, Oelfke is asking supporters to leave a comment too so Sunshine can see the difference she's making.



According to a recent post, Sunny is still bringing some money to school every day for her friends, with larger amounts going directly to the school.

In just 11 days, the GoFundMe has raised nearly $7,000 – more than enough for all 20 kids in Sunshine's class to get milk at snack time for the rest of the school year, as well as years to come.
