GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Empathy and selflessness towards strangers can be just as beneficial as the compassion and care we give to the ones we love.
Whether we know a person for five minutes or 50 years, being nice to the people around you can make a difference and might even save a life. This idea is why Elhart Automotive Campus is proud to sponsor the “be nice.” initiative.
The Mental Health Foundation of West Michigan’s “be nice.” initiative recognizes bullying as a local and national issue. Bullying can be devastating to a person and can leave damaging effects, such as depression and suicide.
Creating positive environments within schools, homes and communities starts by showing kindness and lending a helping hand. The “be nice.” initiative gives elementary through high school students the tools to make a difference in their own lives and in the lives around them.
In a series of television educational pieces, Elhart Automotive Campus partners with “be nice.” to encourage viewers to notice, invite, challenge and empower one another to save someone’s life by simply being nice.
