We asked our readers to tell us how they’re spreading kindness in their community. Here’s what a few of you had to say.
I helped someone with their work. When I needed help, they helped me. So it was kindness back and forth. —Lyaan O., 10, Connecticut
I love talking to people and making them feel better. I make people better with my jokes and silliness. I hope other kids are doing the same. —Caroline R., 7, Ohio
At school, I helped students clean up the cafeteria. For the community, I donated my beloved books to little kids, and I baked cookies to give to senior residents. Even though the things I did weren’t major, they still spread kindness. —Bohan S., 11, Texas
I started doing compliment chains. Friends celebrate one another by creating paper loops with compliments. Then I came up with Earth Baby, a doll given to honor people’s kindness. The money from the dolls will help kids in Uganda. —Abigail G., 8, Washington
