And an 8th grader shall lead them...

Mama's Laundromat in Riverdale, Illinois, looks ordinary at first glance. But it's actually unique, thanks to Washington Junior High School eighth grader Jayera Griffin. She was tutoring younger kids at her school when she noticed many were wearing dirty clothes. She worried this might damage their self-esteem. So she decided to start raising money for Mama's Laundromat.

With help from the school board and township trustees, she raised $1,000 and used it to pay for a "Free Day at Mama's." Her parents were not surprised. "We raised her to be like this, where she knows to give and help out other people," they said.
