Stories of Kindness from Around the World

The Buddy Bench

Won't you be a buddy?

Photo is of the artist in residence at the health club for the last few days. She's been painting a "buddy bench" for the children's camp to use!

When a child is feeling lonely and needs a caring friendship or someone to play with, they take a seat on the bench, clueing others into how they feel.

How wonderful is that?

Had a nice chat with the artist and gave her a Peace dove, which she hung on her sign board right away.

Truly! We are creating a kinder, more Peace-filled, loving and compassionate world. Grateful for all my "buddies!"
