Last week a little boy walked into a Greenfield, Wisconsin police station and did something unusual: He gave $10.03 to the front desk officer - and walked away.

 

Intrigued, the station used its surveillance footage to track the small good samaritan down.

 

A few days later, the mystery was solved.

 

Maxx Siepert, 11, said he was learning about 9/11 in school and was moved by the heroism of police and fire department responders.

 

Of his donation he said, "one day it will make a difference… not a really big difference, but it's something.

 

If every person would do that it'd be such a great world. It would be awesome!"

 

It was a first for the department, said Assistant Chief Paul Schlecht.

 

The kind act lifted morale, Schlecht says. The money will go to the police foundation.
