Diesel Pippert may be in seventh grade, but he's mature beyond his years. The Western Reserve School District recently commended the student, sharing a photo of him after he decided to do a very-adult deed: He donated $15,000 to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The serious-looking Pippert earned the money at the Huron County Fair in Ohio. He decided to donate all of his livestock premiums from the fair's animal sale to help other kids in need. The school district's post about Pippert went viral, with more than 1,000 shares. Diesel received many kind comments about his good deed. Some were even inspired to start fundraisers on his behalf, to continue raising money for St. Jude.
So many of us can certainly be inspired by what Diesel just did.
