"A little kindness can change the world."

That's what 10-year-old Hannah Imig wrote in a letter that her mother posted on Facebook.

Hannah, from Wildwood, MO, heard that some Chesterfield police officers were going to lose some of their pay due to financial issues from the COVID-19 pandemic and she wanted to help.

She first told her mom that she wanted to donate some of her savings to help them. Then she decided to create a fundraiser to buy gift cards for the officers.

The 5th grader wrote a letter asking for donations.

Hannah's fundraiser collected $2,400 in just a day and a half.


"She then went a step further in her kindness and used that money to purchase gift cards from several local restaurants and businesses in the area, helping all of them during these tough financial times as well," the Chesterfield Police Department wrote on Facebook.

Hannah and her family presented the department with 232 gift cards to distribute among the officers.

The department said it's enough for each officer and civilian police employee to have two gift cards each.

"We can't even begin to put into words how grateful we are to Hannah and even more so, what a special, thoughtful person she is! So we'll end the post with how it started: 'A little kindness can change the world'. You did just that Hannah! Thank you," the department wrote on Facebook.
