A 9-year-old California boy used his allowance to pay off his fellow classmates’ outstanding lunch debts. Ryan had a discussion with his mom about some students being unable to afford school lunches. He asked his mom to find out how much money his fellow third-graders owed in lunch debt. It was $74.50. His mom asked him what he wanted to do and he said he wanted to pay it. Ryan said he just wants his classmates to know they are cared about and hopes knowing that will make them feel happy.
