Dozens of bikers stopped by a young girls lemonade stand to support and show their appreciation for her family.

One year ago, Daryn Sturch, a nurse, and her daughter came upon an accident involving several motorcyclists of the Milwaukee Iron.

"I stayed with them and did the best I could to triage them and keep them awake and calm,' Sturch said, adding that all five bikers involved in the crash had sustained 'severe' injuries.

After the accident, Sturch began receiving an outpouring of thank you messages from the bikers associated with Milwaukee Iron.

So when Sturch announced on Facebook that her daughter was setting up a lemonade stand, one of the bikers saw the post.

Nearly 30 bikers pulled up to buy lemonade.

Sturch went on to say "Last year my daughter and granddaughter pulled up on a motorcycle accident that involved several of the men and women of this group. Ever since then they've been so wonderful to my family. Today they came by for lemonade to surprise my granddaughter.

When an elementary school principal heard that one of his students had been spending recess all by herself, he took the time out of his schedule to sit with the youngster during playtime. Not only that, he helped to ensure that she would never have to sit alone again.

Since second-grade student Lucy Taylor has cerebral palsy, it has been difficult for her to make friends at school.

After her mother made a  facebook post about her daughter's struggles, however, it was spotted by none other than Principal Jeremy Thompson.

The next day, Thompson joined Lucy during recess - and Lucy's mother says that the youngster was over the moon with happiness.

"She didn't play alone at recess yesterday. Her principal Mr Thompson stopped in and spent some time with her," her mother later wrote on Facebook. "He made Lucy's day... and helped her mom and dad's hearts!  I am so proud of the Barth family," she added. " Mr Thompson is an exceptional role model for these kids? 

Since Thompson first sat with Lucy, he has also managed to rally a group of youngsters together to share in their recess playtime - and they have named their new gang of friends the 'Bubble Club'.

"Lucy has playground friends. Mr Thompson taking the time to sit with her, of course, made other kids want to play too.  And it has given Lucy the confidence to try the things that she is not necessarily great at!" wrote her mother.

Furthermore, since their story caught the attention of local reporters, Lucy and Thompson have become social media role models for other school staffers and lonely youngsters.

A number of parents have reached out to us whose children are also struggling and Lucy has started sending out T-shirts and bubbles and hand-written notes to kiddos who would benefit from being part of the Bubble Squad. She has taken her struggle and tried to use it to help others.
