We are all aware of the tragedy that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. But are you aware of the inspiration and kindness that has followed?
The Ducks of Sandy Hook are symbols of an idea used by School Resource Officer Todd’s to let the children of Sandy Hook Elementary know their school is safe to come back to, that school is a place for learning, not fear, and that school is where they can always find friends. Soon, the Ducks of Sandy Hook became a symbol of hope and support for the children and the nation at large.
This year, during the week of March 11-15, Mason’s Freshman Class began a week long kindness campaign. Our goal was to have our 800 freshmen perform 4,000 acts of kindness. In total, 5,469 acts where counted during that week and we are still going. As a result of the freshmen class surpassing their goal, local community sponsors donated to a shelter in Cincinnati, Tender Mercies, which provides a home and a new beginning to homeless people with mental illnesses. As close as we can estimate, over $7,000 to support the Kindness Campaign was pledged to charity.
