A stone is dropped into a lake. It ripples and swells far beyond its original contact with the surface of the water.

  • When a parent teaches her kids a new way to work together—there is a ripple of impact
  • When an educator re-teaches her students how to line up for lunch and celebrates as they learn the skill—there is a ripple of impact.
  • When a child notices someone sitting alone on the buddy bench and invites him to join in play—there is a ripple of impact.

When we as individuals decide to take positive action—the impact moves beyond the ordinary of that moment, swelling into our larger communities and world.
