It's safe to say 2020 hasn't been a banner year for most people. Between the coronavirus pandemic and the economic crisis brought on by the health crisis, it can be hard to see the good in the world right now.
In an attempt to bring a little kindness into people's lives, the nonprofit organization, Crayon Collection, hosted the "World's Largest Kindness Event" to help spread a little cheer. Participants from all around the world joined the livestream event last Saturday and together, drew notes of kindness for nurses, doctors and other people on the frontline of the pandemic. Organizers say the notes are meant to support these heroes with messages of gratitude and kindness.
The nonprofit supports teachers, the environment and arts education by donating gently-used crayons to classrooms.
The event was inspired by the late Dr. Lorna Breen, a New York City emergency room physician who committed suicide in April while working with COVID-19 patients.
