  1. Id love to try and do this as well! Is there a place where I can get a list of those?

  2. I would love to help in some way please let me know how? My email is

  3. has a few docs you can print out to use as well as many ideas for roks

  4. I am writing from Newtown, CT and noticed threw a google search that you posted about doing random acts of kindness in honor of the victims. I am doing an act of kindness for some friends here in Newtown who launched Newtown Kindness, a non-profit organization which fosters kindness in children through the Charlotte Bacon Act of Kindness Awards. The organization and program was founded in memory of their friends' daughter, Charlotte Bacon, a victim in the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy. I was hoping you might consider doing a follow-up post about Newtown Kindness as we are trying to foster kindness in children everywhere!

    Children are encouraged to tell their act of kindness story in writing or by drawing a picture for a chance to be recognized with a Charlotte Bacon Act of Kindness Award. Award winners will be chosen by a committee made up of Newtown residents, including the Carlson and Bacon families. The first annual awards will be announced on February 22, 2013, which is Charlotte's birthday.

    Thanks for listening and keeping my community in your heart!
