What is Kindness

Mrs. Clay sent an email to Ali to see if she might be interested in doing "emotinal intelligence" building activities during YAC meetings and Project Warm:  Fleece Blankets for Positive Tomorrows, and Kindgrams for UD.
Last year, the projects were sponsored by seniors who graduated.
