It’s Raining Cats and Dogs

September 28th, 2010

9-28-10Bands of showers moved through Manhattan like an giant oscillating yard sprinkler on steroids; a half-hour of deluge and a half-hour of conditions as though it could rain again any minute, not very conducive to getting things accomplished outside.
The Kindness Bus had a case of cabin fever after two days of rain, however, we did the best we could today, both inside and out. It actually turned out to be quite a remarkable day, since I was interviewed quite extensively by a freelance journalist for a publication in Sweden. I’ll put up the link when it is published, and it would be a big help if you could speak Swedish. A guidance counselor who I met this past weekend, called to reserve a visit to his school in Harlem this upcoming Friday. It is an honor to speak to kids in school, while having the opportunity to try to inspire the students and educators together.
Most of the day I spent talking with Guidance Counselors at elementary schools about the Kindness Certificate on the homepage of the One Million Acts Of Kindness website. I believe it is a great teaching tool for educators across the nation. Most every counselor was in agreement, many are going to use it in their schools. Please print your personal copy located near the top of the homepage.
