A’Layah Robinson is a beautiful kindergartner with a bright smile and disposition! Her life was not always happy. The little girl’s birth mother was a drug addict and A’Layah was placed into the foster system from birth.
“[It was] not very fun,” she says in the video below, posted on January 19, 2017, of her early years in the system. “But, I had to do it because I was a foster kid, until I got adopted.”
After she finally found a forever home in the Robinson family household, tragedy struck and the family noticed something incredible about their new daughter.
“She had her birthday money and Christmas money,” A’Layah’s new mom, Misty Robinson, says. “She saved it all for a Barbie Jeep.” Shortly after A’Layah got her money together, a massive tornado hit her neighbor’s home and destroyed it.
“Whenever the tornado hit just after her birthday, she told me she wanted to give all of her money to a family we know that lost everything,” Misty says. The Robinsons then realized that they didn’t adopt an average 6-year-old.
A’Layah wanted to help kids that were just like her. She started Lemonade for Love, selling countless beverages to support kids in Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS) custody.
Thanks to A’Layah, Lemonade for Love has become a community affair and all of the money raised goes toward yellow bags filled with hygiene products, blankets, toys, bibles, and much more.
“I put that stuff in so they can be special and they can learn about Jesus from the bible,” the young organization leader explains.
Because of all the good that A’Layah has done, her teacher, Tiffany Robertson teamed up with KFOR’s Pay It 4Ward program to surprise the 6-year-old.
