Writing Kindness

My one is my 13-year-old son, Gabe. Gabe is spreading kindness, compassion, and acceptance through a children's book he wrote and illustrated about a boy who has Autism and his struggle to make a new friend at school. Gabe was inspired to write this book from his volunteer experience working in a theater program with individuals who have special needs. Gabe donated all the proceeds from the sales of the book to a local non-profit benefiting families who have children with special needs. The books are being used in classrooms as teaching tools for special education teachers and many parents are reading them to their kids. Gabe's book has really made a difference. Gabe continues to spread kindness at school where he and three friends started a kindness club. With the principal's support, they are doing acts of kindness and empowering and inspiring other teens to do good in their communities.
