Eight-year-old Michael Diamond of Garfield Heights, Ohio lost his grandmother  recently.

He overheard his parents talking about how they didn't have enough money to  pay for a proper burial. So last Thursday, he decided to help out.  Michael  set up a stand selling Kool-Aid by the cup to raise money for his grandmother's  funeral. 

He only sold $55 worth on the first day but the local news found out about it  and came to do a story on Michael.  

The next day, people in the area made a special trip to Garfield Heights to  buy Kool-Aid from Michael.  Some people paid $100 a cup.  By Monday,  he had raised over $5,500, which is enough to give his grandmother a decent  service.
