Two students from student council requested AWK support from PEER Kindness. Their idea was to keep kids at the homecoming dance by hiring a well liked DJ from the front range. During the dance, one of the students went up to the stage and thanked PEER Kindness for their support. The student even gave a kind, positive speech, that ended with the quote, “Spread kindness throughout the community like confetti.” Confetti cannons were shot off into the crowd and a positive upbeat song started playing to get kids energized and make them happy.
Guess what? The students stayed at the dance this year! They even pulled out their phones and liked our Insta handle @alignwithkind and we increased our reach from 90 followers to 467 in seconds! It felt great encouraging so many students to come together, be safe and happy. I even went to the dance this year!
