Paving the Way to a Kinder World

Today's video is from Kerry Lynch and her adorable daughter, Mary Cate. This dynamic duo is trekking across Chicago to visit schools and spread the #ChooseKind message.

Living with a rare disease, like Apert Syndrome, encompasses many feelings and one of the most positive urges being different evokes is the desire to make the world a better place. The Lynch family is sharing their story and in so doing, they are teaching Mary Cate that she has a powerful voice to advocate for herself and others. Plus, by reaching out to schools, they are reminding kids from all walks of life that kindness is a choice that we can all choose to make the world a happier, more livable place for all of us.

We love the work they are doing to spread awareness and inspire kindness.

WGN recently featured their efforts in a video segment and we believe it will get you pumped up for tomorrow, #giveRARE Day! Please remember to share this link and encourage your friends, family, and social media following to donate. Let's get more kids to Retreat in 2015!!!
