Whitney Point Preschool and Caryl E. Adams Elementary

April 28th, 2011

4-28-11Kim Downs and Sandy Atwood are angels who have helped to give The Kindness Bus Tour a lift to a higher level. What an unbelievably special visit to this upstate New York community. A few months of planning never readied me for what was in store for me during my visit yesterday.
An overnight stay at the Downs’ residence was the perfect hospitality needed for the long drive to this area and to rest for a long day to come. Over 500 students from Caryl E Adams Elementary School heard my 45 minute presentation, including the puppet show, to inspire everyone in attendance to “be the one” who makes a difference in someone’s life. Two TV interviews during and after my presentation were another great way to get the word out about my mission. Todd Sherwood, communications coordinator for the district was very helpful with the interviews and provided the photo for today’s blog.
The afternoon and evening presentations included a half hour reading of Bogart’s new book “Bogart Begins His Kindness Adventure,” a dinner including a custom “One Million Acts Of Kindness Day” cake with many from the Whitney Point Community attending and a 45 minute talk about being a parental role model. It seemed like every adult thanked me afterwards for my talk.
One of the many highlights today was Mayor David A Downs proclaiming April 27th 2011 as One Million Acts Of Kindness Day in Whitney Point, New York. What an amazing special place .
Thank you, Bob Votruba and Bogart too!!
