Transcript for Little Heroes Share Acts of Kindness
The spirit of giving is alive and well here in kentucky. This group of approximately 20 schoolchildren from the very small town of middlesborough should be an inspiration to us all. As it's often said, it's often the neediest that are the most giving. What started out at 52 weeks of giving for 20 youngsters from middlesborough, kentucky, has transcended into a ripple effect of random acts of kindness. The kids have taken it and run with it. Reporter: The group was started by two local librarians. They are my heart. I always worked with children. We're helping our community. Reporter: The coal mining town now faces hard times. But continues to pay it forward. We sort of thought we would be, you know -- but what we found is that, you know, the blessing was ours as much as theirs. Reporter: The charitable bunch tried to show the world that one act of kindness can change a life. But washing windows, helping the elderly, even sending letters to u.S. Soldiers far away. And local firefighters at home. It's always refreshing to see, come into and let us know they appreciate us. Reporter: They took me along with them to raise money for boston's public library in the memory of the youngest victim of the tragic boston bombing. They even let me help out. Thank you so much. It's very generous. And raised over $500 in under two hours. High-five. Yeah. With a population of just over 12,000 people, the small town actually sits inside of a 3 1/2-mile-wide crater. Proving if you live somewhere small, you can do something big and touch the lives of many. This town doesn't offer a lot for our children. We're a small town. And we wanted something they could feel a part of. Reporter: For a group whose sense of giving knows no bounds, our friends at disney thought these little heroes deserved to have some fun. So, they sent in a special team. And in only 12 hours, transformed the community center -- into a fantasy land. They got to meet their favorite characters, have a dance party and enjoy a day just for them. And here they are, the children founders. T up. It is amazing. I saw your faces. You walked in here. What was your reaction when you saw what disney set up for you guys? It was amazing. It was more than what I thought it would be. Things like that don't happen in this town. It's amazing. You all completely deserve it. And, j.D., As the mentor. Three years, 52 weeks. What has been your favorite project so far? So far, I would choose alex's lemonade stand. A lot of people come. It's great. May we all learn from the children of 52 weeks of giving. Say good-bye, everybody.
