LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Some Lafayette area sixth graders are learning the lesson of selflessness Sunday.
Some incoming sixth graders from Crestview Church were paying it forward by engaging in random acts of kindness.
These young philanthropists were handing out $5 dollar gift cards at the Pink Walrus frozen yogurt stand, as well as handing out some much needed water to people at Armstrong park.
While some kids are out playing in the sun, these kids are learning important life lessons about being kind to their neighbor.
“We just want them to know that the world is bigger than them and sometimes I think we get stuck in one spot, and it’s just hard for us to look around to see others,” Robyn Redeker said. “So we are just trying at Crestview to be bigger and to do something for the kingdom outside of where we are.”
“It not only makes their night and obviously they don’t have to pay as much money,” Kendra Redeker said. “But it kind of makes you feel that you did something good, and that’s a good thing.”
The Crestview sixth graders decided not to make one of their stops. They are saving the money that they would have spent Sunday to make some local bowlers nights a little brighter next week.
