Cayden Taipalus is an 8-year-old boy from Michigan who truly has a heart of gold.
And Cayden did not stop there! He even went around recycling so that he could raise a little bit of money on his own. Once he had paid off the lunch debts of his friends, Cayden asked that the lunch ladies would add funds into the children’s accounts who needed money so that they would never have to worry again. Cayden has raised nearly $7,000 which has purchased hot lunches for more than 300 students. He would like to continue this so that no child would ever be denied a hot lunch again.
“I am so very proud of my son,” Amber said. “He is only 8 years old and to grasp the concept around this is just amazing in my eyes. He has a heart of gold.”
