A school has started a unique new club dubbed the “Kindness Club” inspired by one of its own students.
St. John the Apostle School in Clark, New Jersey is home to the new “Kindness Club,” which focusses, quite simply, on helping others and doing good deeds.
According to ABC 7 NY St. John’s student Sebastian Nativo came upon the idea after volunteering for Be The Change NJ, a non-profit with the stated mission to “help promote peace and nonviolence in urban neighborhoods.” The club currently has over 50 members among the student body.
The selfless students are already making a difference and are ramping up to do even more over the holidays.
“So far, the students have created thank you cards for Veterans, and have activities planned such as stuffing stockings with gifts for a local children’s hospital and visiting local food pantries and recreation departments.”
The message “be kind” may be simple, but it is necessary.
