"When I was in elementary school, I was talking to a friend about volunteering. I was surprised to hear that she had never volunteered before, not once. When I asked around at school, I found that other students didn’t have an opportunity to volunteer either. I thought this wasn’t fair, and I was inspired to help. Eventually, I came up with an idea, and I called it 9 Small Acts of Kindness. My idea was to organize one volunteer opportunity a month at school. If I could teach other kids how important it is to give back and show them they could make a difference through simple acts of service, it would change their lives and help the world. I presented my idea to our school’s principal, gathered as many students as I could, and the rest is history. What started as one project in a small second grade classroom eventually grew to include my whole school and other schools in our community. 9 Small Acts of Kindness was so successful that in January of 2012, my sister and I launched an organization and a movement that changed my life forever, and we called it Small Acts Big Change™."
