When most of us see a problem, we don't go the extra mile to try to find a solution.
That's not the case with Cayden Taipalus.
The 3rd grader noticed that one of his classmates at Challenger Elementary in Howell, Michigan had to put his hot lunch down because he didn't have enough money in his lunch account. He was given a cheese sandwich instead. This made Cayden sad, so he went home and asked his mom what he could do to help.
"I was in line getting lunch and a kid in front of me had to put down his tray because he didn't have enough money on his account, and that made me sad. So I went home that night and asked my mom what I could do to help," said Cayden.
