Sunshine Oelfke, Jackie Oelfke’s 5-year-old granddaughter, was rummaging through her piggy bank one day after school, and she asked her what she planned to do with the money. Jackie’s heart was broken and touched by the adorable girl’s response.
Jackie explained, “She said she was carrying it to school for milk.” “I told her I had already paid for her milk for the month, and she looked at me and said, ‘My friend’s mom doesn’t have milk money, but I do”.
Sunshine explained, “I’m bringing milk money to school for my buddy because my friend wants milk and I want my friend to receive milk as well.” “We both enjoy chocolate milk.”
Sunshine had been collecting her spare change and a few dollars in the hopes of one day purchasing a snowmobile, but she had made the decision on her own that assisting her buddy was more essential.
Jackie said that her granddaughter consumes milk on a daily basis to help her “become strong for snowmobiling.”
Sunshine and her grandma went to school together the next day, and the nice young girl had many plastic bags full of milk money for her buddy. Jackie described the purpose of the money she had brought to the kindergarten instructor.
Sunshine’s instructor, Rita Hausher, stated, “I have always felt sorry when I have had to tell a kid, ‘no,’ when they ask if they may have milk.” Sunshine’s gesture of compassion had a profound impact on Mrs. Hauser.
Sunshine motivated Jackie to start a GoFundMe for her classmate’s milk money, with the objective of earning $800 to cover everyone’s milk for the remainder of the semester. Kind people from all around the world surprised her by donating a total of $19,730.
They were able to not only provide milk for everyone in Sunshine’s class, but they have also decided to utilize the leftover cash to continue purchasing milk and food for any of Sunshine’s classmates who are in need as she progresses through the grades.
“The money will stay with Sunshine as she advances in grades so that her friends may purchase milk wherever she is,” Jackie stated.
Sunshine’s instructor remarked, “Thanks to Sunshine’s act of kindness for one student, it has grown so much that it now encompasses everyone, which makes my heart glad.”
“Wait a minute! Sunshine excitedly informed her grandmother, “My whole class got milk today.” “[My buddy] now has milk money,” says the narrator.
“She doesn’t realize the influence she’s had,” her grandmother explained, “but she now understands she can do everything she sets her mind to.”
