Partners in Education: Acts of kindness

OMRO, Wis. - "We're walking around the community handing out candy flowers, gift cards, to people just as a random act of kindness giving back to the community," said Eden Mokler, junior and key club member.

Eden said she loves the feeling of giving back.

"We're all walking around pretty happy just because of that," said Mokler.

These students, did nice things for people they met on the street.

"You know just so they could pay for their gas or the donuts they're getting, just a kind thing to do," said Mokler.

Omro high school teacher and key club advisor Danielle Schmick said, the community quickly embraced the idea after, it was originally a "movie night" field trip. 

The money, was used to help others instead.

"We thought this would be a great substitute to do for our field trip," said Schmick.

Gifts like theses may be small but students said they leave a big impact on someone who may need a little sunshine in their day.

"If someone's having a bad day and you know, they're having a bad day, and you give them something or say something nice, then their days going to be better, than it was, just overall, being nice to people," said Aleesha Bernarde, student and key club advisor.
