The horrific tragedy of Friday's school shooting has left us all drained and wondering why and how can something so horrible happen to innocent children, their teachers and principal. The past two days I have read about the efforts of different organizations and people who are pulling together to try to make a difference. One creative and heartwarming idea in Minneapolis is called Smiles for Sandy Hook.
CBIG is sponsoring a Minnesota Children's Art Project in support of the children at Sandy Hook Elementary next Saturday. Children will gather with parents and create art projects that will be sent to Sandy Hook Elementary students.
Another campaign I've heard lots of conversation about is the concept Pay it Forward. Recently a lady was going through a coffee drive and paid for drinks ordered in the car behind her. What a great idea and something so easy we could do in a similar situation.
Perhaps this holiday season we can think of different ways to make a difference in someone else's life. Starting small is good :) Maybe doing random acts of kindness will make us feel better.
