See His Act of Kindness at Cemetery

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," we meet a 6-year-old on a mission to ensure nobody is forgotten. CNN's Michaela Pereira reports.

Braden Johnson of Garden City, Missouri, was at a local cemetery three years ago when he noticed that some of the grave sites were missing flowers.

Ever since, Braden has been determined to fix that, placing one single, white flower on each grave.

The simple and touching gesture has prompted his community to take note.

"He has lemonade stands, he sells brownies, he does whatever he can to raise money - it makes me want to cry - but to raise money to buy flowers to put on everyone's grave, so no one's left out," Garden City resident Holly Miles said.

After hearing about Braden's good deed, Miles was so moved by his kindness that she alerted a local news station, which donates money to outstanding individuals who exemplify the act of "paying it forward."

Miles, along with the news station, presented Braden with $300.

When asked why he goes above and beyond, Braden said he just wants to honor those who have passed away.
