5-year-old Katelynn Hardee overheard another child's mother say that she was having a hard time paying for an after-school program and that made little Hardee think.
She spoke to her own mother after the incident and asked how she could help other students. So Hardee set up a cocoa-and-cookies stand and it was a huge success. After all the success, Hardee decided the money would be used to pay off the lunch debt of 123 students in her San Diego County school district.
Hardee told NBC San Diego, "I don't want people to be hungry." Her selfless action was recognized with an award from administrators at her school Breeze Hill Elementary.
