Eight-year-old boy pays off other children's school lunch debts
An eight-year-old school boy in Michigan, US, has launched a campaign to pay overdue school lunch bills. He's raised $11,000 and paid for 4,000 meals so far.
Cayden Taipalus recently watched as one of his school friends was denied a cooked lunch because there was no money left on his lunch account.
Seeing how upset the boy was after he was offered a cheese sandwich instead of a hot meal, Cayden decided to do something to help low-income children in his school.
He and his mother Amber talked to Mark Whittaker on BBC's Business Matters about their campaign.
