FEBRUARY 10-16, 2014
Random Acts of Kindness Week
And most importantly, as you can see from the example below, kindness matters all year long, not just this week.  :-) 

December 2013

"This little girl is temporarily living near the W/NP office in Managua & is from Rio Blanco, Matagalpa. We happen to be going there Feb. 2014 with the Martin Eye glass project. She was really happy with a nice smile on her face, she comes from a very poor family. It just touches my heart to see kids like her. They appreciate anything one can give them and are so thankful."  

- Mirna

 

Thank you to everyone who donates stuffed animals, backpacks and school supplies, they are distributed all year long and much appreciated as you can see.

Take this week to step out of your normal routine or comfort zone and attempt a new random act of kindness each day this week.

The 2014 Martin Eyeglass Project returned to Wisconsin last week after fitting 2,426 people for glasses in Nicaragua.  

 

The eyeglass project efforts are far from random, as significant planning and resources are required, however, in reading this short story, embrace the inspiration about what happens when we genuinely look out for the needs of others, especially when things don't fall into place at first sight.

Special thanks to Girl Scout Troops #8343 and #8373 for coming together, making a plan and gathering books for the kids in Nicaragua!  Amazing results!

These kids are looking forward to the March special delivery of books (that will be hand carried) for their library!
