Nine-year old raises $100,000

Youthful business woman and aspiring jeweler Kamryn Johnson lives near Minneapolis, Minnesota, so she's very aware of the fight for racial justice that sparked nationwide protests. And at age 9, she's doing something about it.

She and a few of her friends have established a friendship bracelet stand called "Kamryn & Friends: Bracelets for Unity and Justice." Their expectations were modest. They hoped to raise about fifty dollars. But since May 30, the group has raised nearly $100,000 for businesses and food banks in Minneapolis, all because Kamryn wanted to take action. Her dad, former NFL player Ron Johnson, said "she and her friends are finding ways to feed the families of Minneapolis and give back to their community."
