IN OTHER WORDS.... SOMEONE WHO EXEMPLIFIES WHAT SHANE'S IMAGINE-NATION IS ABOUT.
WE WILL HONOR OUR HEROES. THEY DESERVE TO BE RECOGNIZED.
The core principal of Shane's Imagine-Nation is to recognize and reward kids who have either reported bullying, stood up to bullying or has exemplified kindness. What have they done to make the world a better place? Have they made a difference in your community, or your home?
Do you know of a child worthy of being recognized?
Send in your stories, we would love to highlight them so that they can get the recognition they worthily deserve.
P.S. Acts of SELF KINDNESS count! If we are not kind to ourselves, it is impossible to be kind to others. Our goal is to help kids understand that we are all perfectly imperfect.... just the way we are.
IF YOU ARE A LOCAL BUSINESS AND WOULD LIKE TO RECOGNIZE/REWARD A CHILD IN YOUR COMMUNITY WHO IS A SHANE'S IMAGINE-NATION HERO, PLEASE LET US KNOW! WE WOULD LIKE TO SHOW THESE KIDS AS MUCH RECOGNITION AS POSSIBLE (E.G. A FREE PIZZA, GIFT CERTIFICATE TO A LOCAL BUSINESS ETC...)
