Event Description: JOURNAL WRITERS & THE KINDNESS IS CONTAGIOUS PROJECT(IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ANDES CENTRAL SCHOOL) In February 1999, Jennifer Finkle, a teacher at Andes Central School (1990 - present) wrote on the first page of an empty journal: Kindness Chain Key: Remember, you as a human being are very powerful; remember, challenges teach us about the elasticity of the human spirit. Use this journal to record a random act of kindness that you do for someone else. Pass the journal to the recipient and ask them do the same. I hope you’ll be surprised to see how good random kindness can feel and hope it will continue within our school community. The first of hundreds of entries by faculty and staff followed, filling two large journals by 2019. Finkle had been inspired by an episode of the Oprah Show during which Oprah spoke of random kindness and how it can be just as fulfilling to the giver as it is to the receiver. The journals contain small, heartfelt,and uplifting acts of random kindness in written form. A retired administrator received the book and was so moved that he encouraged Finkle to get it published as “a lasting tribute to our unique school and all the people who work so hard to make Andes Central School such a special place.” Finkle partnered with Bright Hill Press to begin planning for the publication and circulation of The Andes Central School Faculty and Staff Kindness Journal, as well as the partner program “Kindness is Contagious Project.” Bertha Rogers, Editor-in Chief, is editing the manuscript and Beatrice Georgalidis, Executive Director, is producing the project and promotional campaign with associate producer Sophie Bille. (500) copies of the Andes Central School Faculty and Staff Kindness Journal will be printed; one copy will be mailed to each of the 46 schools in the Delaware County and Otsego County BOCES school districts as well as a blank journal and a letter detailing the “Kindness is Contagious Project.”
