In between math and reading, there's one simple lesson stressed in all grades at Meadows Elementary School.

"There's not a whole lot in the world now. There needs to be more," Caleb O'Brien, 12, says.

This week is national random acts of kindness week, but something so simple is can starting at the smallest level. 300 students in one school are participating each day in an assigned a theme.

"Kindness makes things work out, so we're wearing workout clothes {today}" Caden Corcoran, 12 says.

Tuesday kids paid to wear hats to school, raising a little over a hundred bucks for Flint, Michigan kids who are dealing with the lead water crisis.

"They can use all they can get," O'Brien said.

"Everybody is a human being, and everybody deserves to be treated nice," Corcoran said.
