Kids in jail?"

That's what Shannon Gaggero's six-year-old son asked when his mom told him about children being separated from their parents at the U.S. Mexico border. So with her help, he set up a lemonade stand to raise money to help the families -- not just a physical stand but also a virtual one. They hoped to raise $1,000 but ended up with $13,283.

Gaffero said her family will donate the proceeds to RAICES, a nonprofit in Texas that offers free and low-cost legal advice to immigrants and refugees. She said the experience was a great opportunity to teach children about the importance of keeping families together.  (Today's crumb came from an alert reader in Bloomington, Indiana.)
