It's World Kindness Week and a group in Kansas City is spreading the sentiment to metro teachers and students. The Be Kind People Project was on the Plaza Saturday morning.
Volunteers are collecting school supplies, electronic games and sports equipment for programs in the Kansas City Missouri School District.
Earlier this week, they handed out gift bags to 2,000 teachers in the district. The organization is also encouraging children to sign a pledge to Be a Kind Kid. Teachers are excited about the whole idea.
"They are definitely looking to us to learn behaviors and learn how to treat other people with respect," said kindergarten teacher Garrett Christiansen. "So, the Be Kind Pledge is a perfect way and a cool way, a little bit of a different look. We are gonna do some activities to reinforce the be kind initiative."
