The fifth-grade class at Andover’s Prairie Creek Elementary wants to fill up social media with kindness.
These kids think big.
They have other projects with their self-named Kindness Project, including giving up their class Valentine’s Day party to donate it to Wichita’s Littlest Heroes, which helps children with life-threatening illnesses.
More generally, the class wants to spread kindness through awareness and a project to involve classes around the country. Do good deeds. Go out of your way to help someone. Say something nice instead of hurtful.
Never miss a local story.
All of us, especially those of us on social media, can learn from these fifth-graders. A happier and more well-meaning world starts with small steps and acts.
