Augusta Mayor Matt C. Childers spoke to Augusta High School students during Monday morning’s routine announcements via the intercom system. Childers proclaimed Jan. 25 – 29 as The Great Kindness Challenge Week.
The Challenge is a proactive and positive bullying prevention initiative that improves school climate and increases student engagement. The challenge is a one-week event devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible. It was created and launched in 2011 by Kids for Peace, a global nonprofit based in California.
“I’m happy to be here to help implement the Great Kindness Challenge. I invite others to also take the challenge,” Childers stated.
