COOKEVILLE -- Robert Thomas decided four years ago, at age 6, that he wanted to do something to help families who can't afford Thanksgiving meals.
"We were talking about Thanksgiving and things to be thankful for, and I asked him what he was thankful for, and we talked about people who weren't as lucky as we were," said Robert's mom, Michelle.

Robert went to his room to play and came back asking his mother if she would pay him to do household chores.

"I said, 'Well son, you know how we feel about paying for chores -- that's just part of your job as part of the family,'" said Michelle. "And he said, 'No, I mean extra things besides my chores. I thought if you could pay me, I might raise enough money to help feed a family for Thanksgiving.'"
