Kindergartner cracks piggy bank to pay for classmates' milk

Five-year-old Sunshine Oelfke was saving up her money for a snowmobile, until a recent conversation with a classmate changed her mind.

Her grandmother, Jackie Oelfke, wondered what Sunshine was doing, as she watched her put the money in her backpack.

Piggy banks usually remain intact until there's something you really really want to buy. Since she doesn't quite get what's going on, Oelfke is asking supporters to leave a comment too so Sunshine can see the difference she's making.

"I asked what she was doing with the money... her reply was, 'I'm taking it to school!'"

"Sunshine is 5 and doesn't grasp the concept of the HUGE impact she is making, but we all do", says Jackie Sue.

At first, Jackie Oelfke thought the girl was playing with the money.

Jackie helped Sunshine take the $30 to her teacher, explaining the little girl's thoughtful idea. 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.

Oelfke's heart sank and melted at the same time.

Because news of the youngster's compassion has gone viral, the campaign has surged past their original goal and raised $6,000. Her mom is a drug addict and has been in and out of prison.

This 5-year-old has always had milk with every meal - so when she noticed that one of her classmates couldn't afford to buy a carton of her own, she made a decision to take matters into her own hands. It costs $0.45 a carton.

People then offered to help the other students who couldn't afford milk during snack time. "Her mom don't [sic] have any milk money and I do, '" Jackie wrote.

"You are teaching her to be a good person and care for others", the user said.

Within a week, Oelfke raised more than $1,000. Thus inspired, the Oelfke girls wondered how many children in the kindergarten class didn't have money for milk.

"Guess what! My whole class got milk today", Sunshine proudly told her grandma on Thursday. Facebook messages poured in from friends and family who wanted to donate, so a GoFundMe was set up to streamline Sunshine's "Milk Money Mission". She was just trying to look out for her friends. "What an unbelievable young girl you are, to have such a big, lovely giving heart", Jackie said a note addressed to Sunshine read, and people are also sending the student cash in the mail.
