Aaron’s Presents – offers unique grants to children.
I met Leah Okimoto, Founder and Executive Director of Aaron’s Presents, in the summer of 2014. She shared with me the touching story of why she started Aaron’s Presents and I knew immediately that I wanted to be involved in her quest of offering grants to children to assist kids in discovering what they have to give to the world.
.In October of 2014, Leah was a guest on my TV show. During the preparation for the show, I learned a great deal about the positive projects that her grant recipients have carried out. In 2016, Leah asked me to be on the Advisory Board of Aaron’s Presents, I was honored by her request and gladly accepted.
The Sequin Of Kindness™
The Sequin Of Kindness™ is a free teacher’s resource. This webpage provides kindness ideas/activities that can be brought into classrooms or community events; the blog (Home Page) provides a place to share the kind acts.
A sequin is small but reflects a lot of light just like a small act of kindness. This concept is one that I hope will translate and affect our classrooms, schools and communities.
In 2012 I worked with CTM TV to expand the Sequin Of Kindness™ into a local television show. I interview people that have extended kind acts to people, animals and the environment.
A simple act such as a sweet smile, a friendly hello, offers to include people that get left out, being a voice for someone that is being prejudiced against or oppressed, not allowing someone to be made fun of, these are only a few examples of small but powerful, kind acts.
