Results in on "Think Kindess" Manitowoc Challenge

Herald Times Reporter • December 14, 2009

Totals are in from the recent “Think Kindness” challenge at nine Manitowoc-area elementary schools.

Students documented 27,355 acts of kindness total over 15 days during October and November, according to a release.

Magee Elementary School in Two Rivers came out on top among the schools, with 5,083 acts of kindness, the release said.

The top classroom total came from St. Peter the Fisherman School in Two Rivers, where one class documented 1,105 kind acts.

Each school documented at least 1,625 acts of kindness, the release said.

Program founder Brian Williams travels to schools around the country, challenging each school he visits to commit and document 5,000 acts of kindness in the 15 days.

Williams’ program is partnered with Soles4Souls, a national organization that collects and distributes shoes around the world to those who need them. Part of the kindness challenge at the schools is for students to collect shoes, as well.

Students collected 2,080 pairs of shoes through their schools and a shoe drive, which have been shipped to Soles4Souls.
