Alarmed by the unfairness, Cayden went to his mother Amber Melke-Peters and said he wanted to support his friend and make sure that things like this didn’t happen again.

Cayden’s Creative Fundraising Website: Amber helped Cayden address his worry by developing a fundraising website called “Pay It Forward: No Kid Goes Hungry.” Cayden made contact with his


“I am so very proud of my son,” Amber said. “He is only 8 years old and to grasp the concept around this is just amazing in my eyes. He has a heart of gold.”

  1. What a wonderful little boy with a giant heart for others! NO CHILD should EVER be denied a HOT MEAL and I hope the Principal, Board of Education and the cafeteria lady were happy with themselves. It probably doesn’t cost the school $1 a day per student! I am embarrassed for them!
    Way to go, Cayden! You are my hero!

  2. This young child was born with a heart full of compassion, truly love and mercy shall follow this child throughout his life. If only all of us were like him what a wonderful world this would be.

  3. Be very proud of you boy.You must have been his example.It makes my heart hurt to think the school gave a cheese sandwich because he didn’t have enough. Money.Shame on them!

  4. What a wonderful young man! Mom and Dad you did a great job raising him. God bless you and I pray this fundraiser will help many more children like your son’s friend.

  5. So true! He has a heart of Gold! He has been raised to be a great great man! We should all learn from his example! This world that has so much ugliness can be changed back into a loving world! It starts with us!
