In these difficult times, Touching Heart’s mission to inspire kids to show compassion for others is more important than ever!
We have been uplifted by stories of those who have found ways to help others during this unusual time. From the smallest thoughtful kindness for a family member to the biggest gesture of giving, all of these acts of kindness really matter!
Check out these stories of amazing kids and others making a difference! We would love to hear about more acts of kindness! Share your stories with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
