Be Kind Belize Launches ‘Kindest Kid in San Pedro’ Award
Sunday, April 1st, 2012
Press Release – Be Kind Belize – March 27, 2012
Be Kind Belize was established in 2007 to provide humane education, promoting the belief that through respect, reverence and responsibility (the humane education three r’s) our community can become kinder and more caring towards each other, other living creatures and our planet.
It is with this in mind that Be Kind Belize is delighted to announce the Kindest Kid in San Pedro Award 2012. All primary schools in San Pedro have been invited to nominate two Kindness Ambassadors to represent their school. San Pedro High School students have formed teams that will be working with primary schools to encourage, support and assist them with these nominations, which must be submitted by the 12th of April 2012.
Schools are being asked to identify children who have been incredibly kind as nominees. Perhaps they have cared for an elderly relative, raised money for a good cause, helped a struggling classmate, spent time cleaning the beach or doing other volunteer work for the community, helped to save an animal’s life or performed other good deeds which would qualify them as Kindness Ambassadors.
The idea is to notice these acts of kindness and to acknowledge and reward them. Far too often, we spend our time tending to the children who are not so kind and we overlook children who are doing wonderful things. Be Kind Belize wants to encourage the community to start to recognise our great kids so that they will be role models for future generations.
Please look out for nominations in the local media, who are all supporting this award and make sure to vote. There will be one winner and one runner up and great prizes.
