All month long we've been reading, talking and tweeting about Wonder by R.J. Palacio. This book has been an amazing tool for schools to discuss differences and insecurities, anti-bullying platforms, kindness, and, most importantly, acceptance of people who have a facial difference.
We love all the new @CCAKidsTweet followers who are enabling us to "widen the circle of acceptance". It's been so touching to see classrooms make a real-life connection to the book by starting the #CCAStandingOvation movement. Teachers are taking the lesson of Wonder, connecting with "real-life Auggies", and showing their students how small acts of kindness can make a huge impact in society. These simple and positive gestures change lives!
To keep the spirit of kindness alive, CCA is doing its first Twitter giveaway! You could win a limited edition #ChooseKind stow-n-go grocery tote. We'll randomly select 15 winners on Halloween, so get your tweeting fingers ready!
