Paying it Forward
Cayden Taipalus saw a problem and sought a solution. WILX Channel 10 reports that the third grade Howell Public School Student, saw a kid in the lunch line end up with a cheese sandwich because he didn't have enough money for hot lunch. Cayden told his mom that it made him sad and he wanted to help. They worked together to come up with a solution and Cayden decided to raise money, not just for 1 classmate but for all the kids in his school. 2 weeks later and following a social media campaign called "Pay it Forward: No Kid Goes Hungry", Cayden has raised $20,000 from all over the world to provide lunch money not just for his school but also for kids in Livingston and Ingham county. His new goal? $30,000, go Cayden!
