It all started with a simple idea in a 5th grade classroom in Maple Grove. It is now an inspiring movement, which is gaining popularity every day.
Cami Folsom, Sophie Bird and Rishi Ingle (Grade 5 students at Maple Grove Elementary) started the Change Lives with Kindness project. They are raising funds to donate to communities affected by the tornadoes in March. The students reached out to the Maple Grove PTO with a favor. They hoped the money raised at their school’s Spelling Bee could be donated to families in Norwalk and Winterset.
We are incredibly proud of these students and their passion for helping others. Please watch the video associated with this story for a refreshing look at the power of being kind. Well done Maple Grove!
