Katelynn Hardee is one sweet little 5-year-old from Vista, California, who goes to kindergarten at Breeze Hill Elementary School.
One day while she was at school, she heard a mom talking to one of the other students about how she could not afford to send them to one of the after school programs.
So, Katelynn went home and asked her mom Karina questions about the conversation she had just heard.
“She started asking me a lot of questions and I just tried to explain to her that sometimes people aren’t as fortunate and that we need to try to be kind and give when we can,” Karina shared with CNN.
Katelynn wanted to do something to help those less fortunate than her, and she knew just what to do.
She set up a little stand in her neighborhood to sell cookies that she baked, along with cider and hot cocoa.

Katelynn ended up selling $80 worth of delicious treats and drinks, and she and her mom donated the money to her elementary school.
Katelynn’s hard work and kindness have paid off the lunch debts of over 100 students that go to the same school as her.
Her goal is to keep her stand going and pay off the lunch debts of every student in her school district.
When she achieves her goal, she’s moving on to helping fund programs at her school that are getting cut out of the budget.
How sweet is that? You go, Katelynn!
