This 10-year-old girl has launched a new initiative that is challenging people to help one and other and their conceptions of being stopped on street by strangers. Instead of asking for money this young lady is giving people a wristband and asking them to commit to doing a good deed for someone else and passing it on for that person to carry on the chain of giving and helping.
Her story proves that despite the many negative news stories we hear of, there are still many good people and young children whom are working for a better future.
Miss Nelson’s goal is to inspire the public to create a new viral trend of passing on good deeds.
“Becuz I Care”, was started by Leah Nelson in order to encourage people to treat each other with kindness.
Her goal is simple; to create a viral chain of positive and good deeds. Those good deeds could range from doing a nice deed, giving someone a compliment or simply buying someone a coffee or tea. The deed is sealed when the person passes on the bracelet to the person whom received the good deed. That person is then challenge to carry on the giving spirit and positivity.
Leah asks that this person explain their good works with the message, “In a world with so many issues, let’s just show other people that they are valued.” Then share the story with her on Twitter by tagging @BecuzICare11 or using the hashtag #BecuzICare11. Leah also has a Facebook page.
Leah felt compelled to do something after she saw one of the worst months in police and community relations. With many believing that the shootings and murders are only the tip of the iceberg of problems that America is facing. Whereas this fear and animosity has been exploited by Republicans like Donald trump, Leah was inspired to spread hope
“It’s kind of hard to be a kid and understand what is going on in the world,” Leah said. “But we’re the next generation. We don’t want to live in a world where you have to hear bad things every day … so let me do something to make sure it doesn’t happen in the future.”
“I just want the world to be a better place. I mean there’s many issues and people are mad about the issues, and if you’re mad about the issues, why don’t you take action to try and change them?”
We don’t have any bracelets to offer. However, it would be great if each person, whom reads and watches this story, were to then tweet or message Leah. Give her challenge the viral social media coverage and support it deserves.
