Hannah Imig, a 10-year-old girl from Chesterfield, Missouri, heard that police officers in her home town were going to take a pay cut due to financial issues from COVID-19. She didn’t want them to be lacking in anything; so she got the idea to do something about it.
She started by telling her mom she wanted to give them some of her savings, then she posted a hand-written note on her Mom’s Facebook page asking for donations to buy gift cards for the officers.
The police department shared that letter:
It might have been the plea for assistance, the idea of helping law enforcement, or the reminder that a little kindness can change the world, but Hannah saw great success from her fundraiser! According to the Chesterfield Police Department she was able to raise $2,400 in a day and a half!
She then used that money to buy gift cards from local restaurants and businesses and donated enough to the department for each officer to get two cards.
It is a very brilliant and generous gesture by Hannah and her family to have worked on this to help the officers. And they were more than grateful, in fact you can read more about this Good News Story of the Day here. But it is important to end, as the police did on their post, and Hannah did in her letter; with the reminder that “A little kindness can change the world.” How can you be that kindness today?
