Kids giving to kids

Kids giving to kids: nstead, Stephanie offered to match the $10 Melanie had, which prompted the second-grader to ask for matching donations from her father and 12-year-old sister too. When they agreed, she solicited donations from her grandparents and aunt and uncle who live in Pennsylvania. Stephanie even donated money on Melanie’s 2-year-old sister’s behalf.

“The thing about Melanie is, she’s pretty stingy with her money. This kid is a saver,” Stephanie said. “So I was pretty surprised when she wanted to give her own money.”

In the end, Melanie collected $150 for St. Jude.
