Grade 6 students recently earned praise for sharing their class savings to COVID-19 cause, even if they could have kept the money for themselves! The sweet gesture went viral, with many netizens saying that these students are role models to everyone, despite their young age.

Plus, the gesture inspired others to help in their own way, saying that they felt a bit ashamed that these kids thought about sharing their blessings while many adults keep complaining about not getting enough help from the government.
