It is always a good day when one person helps out another. They are a sense of joy and respect that comes from the moment. Usually, both people are blessed and feel motivated to pass on the moment to another. This is exactly what has taken place in a small elementary school located in Vista, California.
At a time when the state is becoming more socialist and thoughtless, a little five-year-old girl defies all expectations and comes to the aid of her classmates. She aimed to collect money, so she could help 123 other students’ payoff their school lunch debts.
This little kindergartner came up with the idea after she noticed that a parent of another child was having a tough time paying for another program that the school offered. Katelynn Hardee took it upon herself to investigate the issue.
Little Katelynn just could not wait to talk with her mom about what she saw at school that day. Her round of questions was enough for her mother to take notice as she would say “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.”
The little girl’s mother, Karina Hardee, took the time and moment to teach her child a valuable lesson about kindness and charity. At a time when some pathetic parents would rather teach their kids to not help and remain selfish, Hardee gave her daughter a life lesson on hope and love. Katelynn was moved to help others and not ask for anything in return.
The five-year-old girl took it upon herself to lovingly provide hot cocoa, cider, and cookies to people passing by her home. The items she sold would make others warm and happy, but the money she received would be used to help others. Katelynn would go one to collect $80 in sales. Instead of putting the money in her piggy bank she took her mother’s hand and headed to the school. There she would pay off the negative lunch debt of 123 students.
What a difference it would make in the lives of people all around the world if the media outlets would tell more stories like the one Katelynn and her mother have inspired one reporter to write about. Christmas is not the only time of the year to tell the stories of love and compassion. In the kindergartners’ own words, she hopes that others “can have a snack and lunch.
If they don’t, their tummies grumble.” Katelynn had learned that it is better to help others than be selfish with her time. Lori Higley, who is the girl’s principal stated, “It goes to show that even one small, kind act from a 5-year-old can mean the difference for someone in their life.”
The difference that one child can make should inspire all the nasty Democrats to stop fighting with everyone and learn to love and care about the people that elected them into office. Katelynn is already making plans to tackle an even greater need. The school district in Vista, California has a lot of students that need help. And she certainly is going to make a difference a family’s life this holiday season.
The real inspiration of this little girl has already spread to others at her school. She is organizing a multi-student effort to have several stands operating at once to raise money for the school lunch accounts of other students. She also has been motivated to help fund after school programs that are on the verge of being cut because of budget shortfalls.
Hardee has stated that “It’s all about kindness. Especially this holiday season, and with everything that’s going on in the world, we just need a little more kindness out there.”
Christmas is the time of the year when the best and cheerful events take place. Katelynn and her mother have found a way to motivate others to do the same year-round. There are always going to be people that need help.
So there needs to be more people like this family that is willing to help others with no thought of having anything in return.
