Little acts of kindness add up to make a huge difference. This is the sentiment that I have been sharing with my students at school. While they are little, they can still make a huge difference in the world. We have been taking time and noticing the nice little things that we do for each other. Our principal has been reading some of them off everyday at the end of school over the announcements. Yesterday we discussed how making other people happy makes us happy as well.
Again… its the small things.
Inspiring our youth is something I strive to do daily, but a lot of the time the kids end up inspiring me. I have been blessed to have worked with amazing kids and amazing families.
Coca-Cola wants to reward these deserving youth.
Coca-Cola is getting off to a great start in 2013 with its second annual Coca-Cola “Pay It Forward” program through My Coke Rewards. Coca-Cola’s “Pay It Forward” program helps parents, relatives, mentors, friends and the community support aspiring young people achieve their dreams by nominating them for unique and exciting apprenticeship experiences.
Four lucky nominees will be rewarded with the unique and exciting opportunity for an apprenticeship experience with one of the country’s most respected celebrity history makers: business mogul Magic Johnson; chairman and CEO of BET Networks, Debra Lee; or hip hop artist and philanthropist, Common.
Parents, relatives, friends and mentors can nominate aspiring youth between the ages of 16-21, now through March 2nd for a chance to win the apprentice experience. You can nominate up to five young people (the young person can also nominate himself/herself) and be entered for a chance to win a $5,000 sweepstakes with each nomination!
So, how do you and your family “Pay It Forward?”
