A kindergarten girl from Michigan emptied out her piggy bank to pay for milk for her classmates who don’t have the money to buy it.

Sunshine Oelfke of Ishpeming, Michigan, told her grandmother that her friend Layla didn’t get milk at school and that she wanted to pay for Layla’s milk, CBS News reported. At her school, milk costs 45 cents. 

Grandmother Jackie Oelfke posted about the touching action on Facebook and received dozens of offers to donate so that others in the class could have milk money as well.

“My heart is so full of pride and love knowing in a world where there is so much hatred, there is a ray of Sunshine with a HUGE heart that at the age of 5 LOVES everyone and always wants to help,” Jackie Oelfke wrote.

She started a GoFundMe page and raised more than $1000 in a week, which will cover the cost of milk for the class through the end of the year, CBS News reported. More than $10,000 total has been raised so far.

Sunshine Oelfke came home a few days later and said, “Guess what! My whole class got milk today. Layla now has milk money,” CBS reported.

Jackie Oelfke said Layla’s family had been disrupted by a drug problem that led to her mother spending time in prison.

“She doesn’t understand the impact she’s made,” Oelfke said of her granddaughter, CBS reported. “But now she knows she can do whatever she puts her mind to.”
