Secret Kindness Agents

 

Description:  

Dr. Ferial Pearson wondered if a simple act of kindness could change a life. She thought of the school where she taught and the students she guided every day and wondered, what would happen if we started secretly carrying out small acts of kindness in school?

Could a modest act of compassion really change the course of a life? She posed the question to her students. They didn't have the answers but they were willing to find out. So, they became the Secret Kindness Agents. They not only changed the lives of those they met, they changed their own. Their hope, their hearts, and their hungerfor happiness will inspire you to change your small corner of the world, in your own way, for the better.
