What a visit to a very special school. This school of 840 students is celebrating Collier County Kindness Day by involving the students in documenting their kind acts on banners that will be hung in the hallways. They will continue the kindness through to the end of the year.
Thank you to everyone who helped to make this visit happen.

Over 850 students sat in on two kindness assemblies with their teachers and counselors at this Naples, Florida school. Bogart was such a big hit with the children and helped them learn, in a fun setting, to be kind and help one another.
Hearing about life’s lessons through the eyes of a dog and a handful of puppets, reinforces these same messages learned from their educators and parents.

The cool air of winter has finally arrived in Florida. Temperatures have been unseasonably hot for this time year, making riding the Kindness Bicycle a challenge. The sun and the high temperatures made riding the bike and early-morning event. The cooler air is most definitely welcome.
