My son Cayden Taipalus who is a fourth grader at Challenger Elementary in Howell witnessed a child get denied a hot lunch because of no money on his lunch account. The child instead was offered a cheese sandwich. This upset the child along with my son. He came home and wanted to know how he could help kids out. We came up with Pay It Forward: No Kid Goes Hungry. Cayden called family, friends, neighbors and even took back cans to raise money to pay off low income kids deliquent lunch accounts at school. He not only paid off the acccounts but added money to them so the child had no future worries about lunches. The donation response has been wonderful so Cayden is continueing on to other elementary schools to help out more kids. He would like to do all livingston county elementary schools if possible. We cant do this alone, any donation is accepted and very much appreciated.
