Mercy Craniofacial Team in St. Louis Creates #ChooseKind Tree

Dana Kiley is a powerhouse and "Wonder" ambassador. She works as team coordinator at Mercy Kids in the Cleft Lip and Palate and Craniofacial Team in St. Louis, MO. She was featured on St. Louis local news station KMOV Channel 4. Watch the video of the interview on their website.

In addition to spreading the word about the upcoming movie, Kiley created this crafty response to the story and spirit of "Wonder" through her kindness tree. This cool idea has us at CCA thinking about the holiday season. What a great idea!  

Try something like it in your clinic or at your school to celebrate the book and movie Wonder out in theaters on November 17th.

 Here's what Dana had to tell us about her creation: 

 Our clinic really enjoyed coming up with acts of kindness to put on the tree…I would recommend other clinics to do this as a teamwork/formation activity too.  And we left extra blank ones next to the tree so patients/families can leave other ideas on the tree. 


Text on Choose Kind Tree Star reads: 
An act of kindness can help others in a great way. 
Please take an act of kindness off the tree and complete it today.
If you think of another act of kindness to add to the tree,
please write it and add it for others to see.
Sponsored by the Mercy Cleft Lip/Palate and Craniofacial Team
Inspired by the film “Wonder”
