Today was our annual visit to the Golisano Children’s Museum of Naples. It is always such a nice invitation and a great way to connect with many of the students we have visited in their schools these past few weeks. Thank you to everyone who made this visit possible. Many of the employees, administrators and board members came out during the course of the day to talk with us. The Bogart books were a very big hit. I even brought the puppetshow out and set it up next to the bus, there was very great interest from children and parents alike.

Oftentimes, the students who need a message of kindness in their lives, appreciate it the most.
Today’s visit to the Naples Alternative school afforded me the opportunity to speak with students who have had some struggles in their lives. All of the students are looking for a little kindness in their lives, someone who will listen to them, someone to trust them and someone to tell them how moving forward with their lives with kindness is going to be so incredible.
Many of these students either shook my hand or thanked me for my inspirational talks. I loved talking to these students!
Today I visited two schools in Naples, Florida located in Collier County. This morning I visited Golden Terrace Elementary school and my afternoon travels took me to Lely Elementary school. These four programs today were a breeze. My voice is a little hoarse, but none the worse for the wear. I really love talking to students, the more, the merrier!
Every visit to every school is a special visit and Bogart and I put our hearts into spreading this message of kindness to the students, faculty, educators and administrators.
Sabal Palm Elementary school I had a literacy night today. Dozens of parents and the PTO learned firsthand about One Million Acts of Kindness. It was a perfect evening which capped my two afternoon kindness programs to the students at the school. I was invited to sign copies of Bogart’s book. They sold like hotcakes!
The books are a wonderful way for the kids to continue their journey of being kind long after my visit.
Today I had the honor of visiting Lake Park Elementary school in Naples, Florida. The 500+ students and faculty were treated to kindness assemblies this morning. I love when the kids listen to the assemblies and then ask me all sorts of creative questions. Most of the questions pertain to Bogart, imagine that.
