This is approximately the coolest thing I've seen all week.

http://www.nola.com/education/index.ssf/2017/01/donors_come_forward_to_erase_s.html

It came to me via my weekly Kickstarter "Things We Love" newsletter. The TL;DR is this:
try to find out which of your local schools have kids with overdue lunch accounts and pay them off.

Kids with overdue lunch accounts often can't get the full hot meal and are sometimes publicly shamed by being forced to eat a visibly different cheese sandwich or other lame (and not all that healthy) food. Because we know that publicly shaming a child for their parents' poverty or neglect is always a good idea. Jayzus.

Whoever came up with this idea ought to be nominated for sainthood, if you ask me.
