Determined 8 Year Old Sells Kool-Aid to Pay For Grandmother’s Funeral

8 Year Old
Facebook

Meet 8-year old Michael Diamond…..

He’s just a kid from Ohio, who should be thinking about summer vacation, not how to take care of his Grandmother’s funeral.

 

He overheard his parents talking about how they couldn’t afford a proper burial, so last Thursday, he decided to help out by setting up a stand selling Kool-Aid to raise money for his grandmother’s funeral.

 

He only sold $55 worth on the first day, but the local news found out about it and did story on Michael.

 

The next day, tons of people came out to buy Kool-Aid!  Some people paid $100 a cup.

 

By Monday, he had raised over $5,500! Enough to give his grandmother a decent service.

 

It’s certainly refreshing to hear a child put everything on hold, and do what’s right for his family.  It’s an example that we can all learn from, from an 8 year old.
