Much better than an apple!

Today's crumb was contributed by a reader in southern Indiana. Parker Williams is only nine years old. He's in third grade at Gorrie Elementary School in Tampa, Florida. He believes in the slogan, "pay it forward," so here's what he did with his birthday cash.

After receiving $15 of birthday money, he decided to give it to someone special, and it didn't take long to decide on his teacher, Mary Hall Chambers. Why? "Well, I think she's a really kind teacher and she spends time on everybody." So when Parker arrived in class recently, he handed Chambers they money with a note that told why he was giving it to her. His note said, "Dear Mrs. Chambers, I don't think that teachers get paid enough for what they do, so will you accept this gift?"
