Pine Tree Junior High will present Tiny Girl, Big Dream October 24 with Acacia, founder of Tiny Girl, Big Dream, Inc.
The Mission of Tiny Girl, Big Dream, Inc. is to provide resources to children of all ages and walks of life, so they can learn to work together to solve the tremendous challenges facing them today, and prepare for a brilliant and vibrant tomorrow.
The Mission of Tiny Girl, Big Dream comes from the life of a tiny girl, a girl who was born of magic. A girl without complete arms who, despite her differences, or perhaps because of them, intuitively knows what it feels like to be left out, not to be part of the “normal” group. Every child, indeed, every person, understands that feeling, having felt it many, many times in their lives. But few have the big dream Acacia Riddle has.
One tiny girl has the courage of many and a big dream of making a difference for children by speaking out and providing others with a means of expressing themselves without words- The Friendship Bench.
Acacia’s dream is to place friendship kits into every school across the United States and spread friendship around the country and around the world. She believes that if we can begin to put the spotlight on all of the goodness, random acts of kindness, and yes, friendship, then we will begin to see a brighter more vibrant world. A world where kindness, compassion, and humanity are recognized, appreciated and rewarded. A world where acts of violence are replaced by acts of kindness.
Pine Tree 7th Grade students will hear the presentation at 1:00 p.m. followed by the 8th grade students at 2:00 p.m. at Pine Tree Junior High.
A Friendship bench donated on Manly’s Furniture will be presented that day and will have a permanent location on the campus.
