A great big, virtual high-five goes out to a whole bunch of students, staff, and parents at an elementary school in Rochester, Minnesota.  They not only helped collect a whole lot of food for people in our community but they did it in a really, really fun way...and it was all caught on video.  That's not all they did though...a total of 2,144 acts of kindness were completed during the month of March.

An Elementary School in Rochester Public Schools in Minnesota rallied together and donated over 200 boxes of cereal!

Huge hugs and thanks are going out to the team at Bamber Valley Elementary School in Rochester!  They donated 100 boxes of cereal to the Ronald McDonald House and according to a post on Facebook, they also donated 100 boxes to The Landing, MN, a nonprofit that helps those experiencing homelessness in our community.

To celebrate the huge success, the cereal boxes were all lined up and were caught on video tumbling down the hallway.  So fun and you can see from the kids' faces how excited they were to help and be part of this challenge!

I did a little snooping on the Bamber Valley Elementary Facebook page and it looks like this act of kindness was part of a HUGE event happening at the school this month. Looks like this cereal event was part of their Raise Craze fundraiser and in total they raised $28,429 and 2,144 acts of kindness were completed!  See all the acts of kindness that were completed at their Facebook page here.
