Socktober!

This week I had the pleasure of visiting several schools.    I had a pivotal moment when visiting Grandview.

The Principal introduced me to a young man named Aidan, who at only 8 years old was, in her words,  “Doing something incredible”!

Aidan had viewed Kid President’s video about Socktober.   Here’s the video link if you haven’t seen it.

Well it seems that the video really spoke to Aidan and within days of seeing the video a flyer created by Aidan had been sent home, socks started flowing into the school and kids (this is a K-3 school) started making a serious difference by collecting Socks for nearby Shelters for the Homeless.

Here’s a picture of the letter that went home with all students!  And another of the second batch of socks that these amazing kids have collected.

Once again…our students have amazed me.  Consider the power viewing Kid President’s video has had on this small K-3 school.  I know that our future is in great hands (and feet) when I see acts of incredible kindness like this initiated by our youngest students.

Way to go Aidan!

Way to go Grandview!

This adult is in awe of you!
