Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 09, 2014
AlertID, Inc. continues on its mission to help people live safely by sponsoring the Be Kind…like Josh program for Southern Highlands Preparatory School in Las Vegas. The Be Kind…like Josh program was started in Las Vegas, NV after a local family lost their son, Josh Stevens, a child who was fulfilled by spreading kindness to others. The Josh Stevens Foundation believes that genuine kindness born in the heart of a child deserves celebration. They recognize and celebrate heartfelt kind acts, and inspire more children to be more kind, more often.
“The Be Kind…like Josh program is so important in the world we live in today, and everyone can benefit from a reminder to be kind, especially our children”, said Keli Wilson, Founder of AlertID. “Many times bullying can lead to more serious crimes, so we feel that sponsoring the Be Kind…like Josh program helps AlertID continue our mission to help people live safely by encouraging people to be kind to one another.”
About The Josh Stevens Foundation
Josh Stevens was a unique spirit – full of life, with a heart as big as a lion and enough love to share with everyone he encountered. One month before Josh’s 13th birthday, he lost his life in a tragic accident. His time on Earth was much too short, but his Kind heart and spirit will live forever through his unique brand of Kindness. His legacy continues to inspire. The Josh Stevens Foundation was created to honor his life and the example he set for us all to follow. Josh was always doing something Kind for someone else. We believe that when he was Kind to others, seeing how it made them feel, it inspired him to pour out more Kindness. This is how and why we came up with The Josh Stevens Foundation and the Be Kind… like Josh program. It’s a simple way to “catch” someone and let them know that their genuine Kindness can change the world.
Since 2009, the Josh Stevens Foundation has enlisted more than 350 schools in 9 states reaching thousands of children, teachers, school administrators and other members of the community in our Be Kind… like Josh initiative. The purpose of The Josh Stevens Foundation and the Kindness card is to remind people that there is a whole wide world in need of more acts of Kindness. We want children and adults to know that people really do appreciate their kind actions, even though most times they go unnoticed. For more information, visit http://www.joshstevensfoundation.org.
