“This girl has got it…she understands at the core what it is to care about people” says Katelyn’s 3rd grade teacher. Her generosity began with emptying her piggy bank to give $40 toward 21-year old Lukas De Cruz’s physical therapy needs. Katelyn had never met Lukas, who was paralyzed from a gunshot, but felt compelled to give all she had to help him. This caused a chain reaction to inspire her classmates, family and community to give and feel the goodness of kindness resulting in over $10,000 being raised to give the care that Lukas needs to regain his strength. Katelyn’s message is that “we all have kindness within us; we just need to find it”. She continues to “Think Kindly & Act Boldly” with bake sales, lemonade stands and by being an positive example of kindness!
