A little girl, adorably known as Sunshine, is truly living up to the joyous nature of her name.
Recently, the 5 year-old’s grandmother, Jackie Oelfke of Ishpeming, Michigan, posted on Facebook about her granddaughter’s act of kindness. One day, Jackie went into her granddaughter’s room and found her with an emptied piggy bank, counting change out. She asked the little girl what she was doing and got an answer that brought her to tears.
“I am going to give it to my friend at school because she don’t get milk for snack. Her mom don’t have any milk money and I do,” Sunshine explained.
So Jackie helped Sunshine bag up the change and bring it to school the next day. Sunshine put it toward her friend’s milk account. Jackie was also moved to post a video explaining her granddaughter’s kindness, compassion, and selflessness.
Here is the message from the Facebook post:
“Sitting here working my business, Sunshine dumps out a bunch of her snowmobile money on the floor and starts counting it all. After a few minutes, I see her bag up some of it and I asked her what she was doing with the baggy of money. Her response put me in tears…’I am going to give it to my friend at school because she don’t get milk for snack. Her mom don’t have any milk money and I do’
As I turned my head to wipe my eyes, I handed Sunny her backpack and in it the baggy of money went. My heart is so full of pride and love knowing in a world where there is so much hatred, there is a ray of Sunshine with a HUGE heart that at the age of 5 LOVES everyone and always wants to help… THANK YOU LORD for such a beautiful little girl.”
Jackie has helped Sunshine start a fundraiser to take her charitable efforts to the next level. Click HERE to watch Jackie’s tearful video! And go to Sunshine’s Milk Money Mission to donate to the GoFundMe, which Sunshine is using to raise money to make sure everyone has milk money for snack time.
