NORTH JACKSON, Ohio (WYTV) – Students at Jackson-Milton high school are sharing kind words with strangers across the state.
It’s part of a project called “more love letters” introduced to the students by their teachers.
In it, each student writes a handwritten note with some inspirational messages and hides it somewhere in the Valley.
In the note, they ask the recipient to respond by sending an e-mail.
“In the beginning, I’ll be honest, some of them thought, ‘Ok what am I really going to do, am I really going to make a difference?'” Jackson-Milton Teacher Angeline Theis said. “Then as they started writing, I noticed them coming back and saying, ‘Can I write more?’ And now that we’ve received some responses from some of the people, they’re even more excited to see if we get more.”
Students at Jackson-Milton said that this lesson has taught them that even a little act of kindness goes a really long way especially around the holidays.
