Participation In “KIND Tuesday” Helps Plant School Gardens

Participation In “KIND Tuesday” Helps Plant School Gardens

 

It’s been said that no good deed goes unnoticed, but it can sometimes feel like going the extra mile for your fellow human only results in a more exhausted you.

KIND (a new brand of healthy snacks), is on a mission to prove that small acts of kindness can make a big difference when enough people participate.

Each month, KIND challenges people around the world to carry out a specific KINDING Mission on the first Tuesday of the month (a.k.a. KIND Tuesday). If enough people sign up to complete that month’s mission, the folks at KIND carry out a BIG KIND Act for the world.

This month, KIND, Food Corps and the Whole Kids Foundation are uniting under the shared goal of ending childhood obesity by planting sustainable gardens at select schools nationwide… if and only if enough people take on a challenge to do one kind act.

Today’s mission should you choose to accept it:

Pass along a book, newspaper or magazine that you’ve enjoyed to someone else on Tuesday, September 6th, and KIND, Food Corps and Whole Kids Foundation will plant healthy gardens at schools to deliver hands-on nutrition education to kids.

That’s it! Couldn’t be easier, right? Instead of tossing that newspaper article into the recycling bin, share it with a coworker. Instead of putting that novel up on the shelf to gather dust, share the adventure with a family member. You never know when these random acts of kindness will come back around to brighten your day!

Click here to learn more about how to get involved with KIND Tuesday, and how to share your sharing story once the mission is complete!

I do give away lots of books after reading them-- as well as giving lots of books to kids!! Literacy is one of the many causes I support too.

The gardens are a wonderful Idea!!!!

Great idea, but lets make everyday a KIND day, and every school should have a garden tended by the students and then have fresh food from their garden for lunch.

School gardens, what a great idea! Hope that there will be followup on the part of the schools so that once established, the gardens don't die for lack of student, parent and teacher involvement.
