be kind / Collections for Franklin County Homeless Shelter

be kind.  Kindness has been shown to cause a ripple effect.  Research shows if you show kindness to one person, that person will show kindness to four people and those four people will show kindness to four more people and so on . These exchanges of kindness can change the world.
