DORCHESTER, Mass. – A Massachusetts woman’s kind act is warming hearts across the country.

Nicole Bollerman, a third grade teacher from Massachusetts, entered the Capital One #WishForOthers contest to win books for her students.

Not only did the teacher’s entry win books for her students, but she also won the $150,000 grand prize.

When Capitol One gave her the $150,000 grand prize, she immediately knew what she wanted to do.

“To me there was no other real option. I wished for it for the kids and to me where else would it go except for them,” Bollerman said.

When Ellen heard about Bollerman’s kind actions, she decided to do some giving back of her own.
