St. John the Apostle School in Clark, New Jersey, is helping to spread a message of kindness through the creation of their own Kindness Club. It all, apparently, began with one student – Sebastian Nativo – who shared his experience as a volunteer with Be The Change NJ, a non profit dedicated to community service and activism projects that help promote peace and non violence in urban neighborhoods.
Since its inception the Kindness Club has grown to nearly 50 students who have done everything from creating thank you cards for Veterans, to planning activities such as stuffing stockings with gifts for a local children’s hospital and visiting local food pantries and recreation departments.
It is a simple reminder for students and others to “pay it forward.” It is also your Good News Story of the Day which you can find here, and comes with a bit of a video on the club. It’s good to see the message of kindness being spread around, because kindness is the expression of love. A love that we are all encouraged to hold for each other and show in our daily lives. So whether it is with a kindness club, a church group, a business, or just on your own: be kind.
