Be Kind... like JoshApril 2013


It's an exciting time for the Josh Stevens Foundation.  We have a new Executive Director.  Jennifer Morss has brought in tons of new energy and fresh ideas from her own philanthropic work history. We have been working diligently to implement the necessary systems and procedures so that we may better serve all our fantastic supporters across the country.  Jenn has already attended several Be Josh Programs and is amazed at all the love and support from our community.  Thank you for being so warm with your welcome for our new Executive Director.

Drew had a great visit in Oregon!  After one of our very first fans introduced the Be Josh Program to Oregon several years ago, Gregg Lockwood has reintroduced our message to some new friends in the town of Sweet Home, Oregon.  Drew was honored to share Josh's story and Kindness legacy with several Middle Schools during his visit.  Welcome Aboard, Sweet Home!

OMGosh Josh

Diane Stevens, Josh's Grandmother, is known as "GramCracker" with all the children she reads to in the Clark County School District.  Sam, Josh's younger brother, gave her that special nickname and everyone LOVES it!  GramCracker is very involved with the Foundation and in the month of February alone ready "Oh, My Gosh, Josh!' to more than 2,000 students in the Las Vegas Valley.  GramCracker will begin her own column in our next issue of this newsletter appropriately titled "Ask GramCracker."  We hope your children will start thinking of questions about Kindness and email GramCracker: 

Kindness Activity...

On March 5th, Detwiler Elementary School students celebrated Kid Kindness Day.  It was a day to remind students to sprinkle their kind actions and words on to others, not just on that day but every day!  Primary classes paired up with intermediate classes to complete a Kid Kindness Cupcake Activity page.  The students wrote random acts of kindness in each sprinkle and decorated their kind cupcake.  To make this activity even more special, Freed's Bakery generously donated 720 mini cupcakes.  It was a very sweet treat enjoyed by everyone and a great day!!!!  

Kind 4th Visit...
Coach C Class

Coach C and the Derfelt 4th Graders visited the Josh Stevens Foundation Office, made Kindness Cards and designed their own t-shirts. After printing their shirts, we all visited Josh's park for lunch.  The kids each gave up buying something for their personal gain to donate money to the mission of the Josh Stevens Foundation.  These amazing 4th graders donated $163 to support the Kindness Revolution.  Thank you, friends!
