While walking through cities in Minnesota, five-year-old Rachel Barth couldn’t help but notice homeless people on the street. Her parents explained the situation to her -- and Rachel decided to do something about it.

She started a lemonade stand, with the goal of helping people from the start.

Because of her big heart and ambition, Rachel raised over $65, which she donated to the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans -- an organization that helps veterans in need find housing. More important than the money, though, was the example she set for others to follow.

She said: "Veterans are nice because they fought for America to help America's team win." 

In exchange for her hard work and generosity, Rachel received a certificate and a special military coin, which is a reminder to everyone that they can make a difference, regardless of how old or young they are.
