It wasn't all bad

This 5-year-old emptied her piggy bank to buy milk for her friend. Her community responded by donating more than $12,000.

A Michigan girl's act of kindness has ensured that all of her classmates get milk at snack time. Sunshine Oelfke, 5, donated the $30 in her piggy bank to her kindergarten teacher after noticing that her best friend didn't have any milk money. Inspired by Sunshine's generosity, her grandmother set out to raise $800 online to buy milk for the whole class in the second semester. She raised $12,755, so Sunshine's classmates will have milk for years to come. Sunshine says she's is just happy to have helped her friend: "We like chocolate milk — together."
