Seal of Approval

Wednesday, November 16th, 2016


Thank you to Barb a former teacher from Seagate Elementary School in Collier County, Florida for flagging me down so I could meet her dog Jesse.
Barb has fond memories of our school programs and wished that Bogart had been with me to meet Jesse.
I love it when our school programs get the seal of approval from a teacher, counselor or principal.

Three Cheers for Morgan

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016
One of our biggest fans, Morgan Tocco broke her hip two weeks ago. She and her mother Susanna and friend Zoe were having lunch when they spotted the Kindness Bus. We turned around and offered Morgan some comfort and presented her with a copy of Bogart’s new book: “It’s Always a Good Time to Make a New Friend”
Heal quickly Morgan!!!

Lely High School

The Swamp Buggy parade took place this in Naples, Florida. Loving a captive audience, I made sure the Kindness Bicycle got great exposure.
These cheerleaders from Lely high school in Naples, Florida did a cheer for the Kindness Bicycle as I rode by which prompted this wonderful photo. All schools should be bully-free, that was the consensus.

Great Mom and Sons

What a wonderful family from Saint Armand’s, Florida. Deborah and her sons “Dan Stan the man” and Walter David were so excited to meet Bogart and the man driving the Kindness bus.
It was Deborah’s birthday and she was thrilled to start the day with such excitement.

Calling All Families

Thursday, November 10th, 2016


This winter while in Florida Bogart and I are going to concentrate on our efforts of visiting neighborhoods hoping to connect parents and children with our messages of kindness, compassion, respect, human to human comfort, gratitude and others.
Thank you to the Dooney family for the warm welcome back to Naples, Florida. Bogart and their dog Lucky had a great time taking turns chasing each other.

A Big Hit

Tuesday, November 8th, 2016


Saint Mark’s preschool on Marco Island, Florida invited me to come and visit to read Bogart’s new book: It’s Always a Good Time to Make a New Friend…many smiles and giggles in the crowd. It is very clear that Bogart has a big hit on his hands…I mean paws.
