Southport World Kindness Movement
Homeroom classes supported the National Junior Honor Society’s efforts by donating gift boxes for needy children around the world. The gift boxes were filled with small toys and gifts for girls or boys. For the donation drive, homerooms that donated a gift box received a dress code pass to wear a school appropriate t-shirt . The poster for the World Kindness Day Wall was made by students to inspire school-wide random acts of kindness!
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” ~Aesop
“Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
World Kindness Day Wall
