Kindness is Contagious!

Kindness inspires kindness.

When the student ambassadors volunteered on Wednesday, they noticed that there was a need for tools to do gardening work. They came up with the idea to go ask for some simple tools to donate to the maintenance and custodial staff at Edmond Public Schools administration center.

When making the ask at a local store, they learned the donations manager was off that day. A kind woman overheard the conversation and offered to purchase the items needed. The students were humbled, thanked her, and picked out the least expensive items. The lady insisted they needed the nicer tools so they would last.  

Sometimes kindness whispers.

The students asked the kind woman if they could take a picture for social media or get her name so they could send a thank you note. She said, “consider it an act of kindness.” So, if she happens to see this, THANK YOU! Thank you for your donation to help public schools. Thank you for showing students that their efforts to make a positive impact do not go unnoticed. Thank you for inspiring kindness.

At Edmond Public Schools Foundation, we see acts of kindness every day. It is often a whisper. So, to all of you who support public education, we see you, we hear you, and we thank you!
