Thank you Epoch Awards

This year SPPRAK was honored to be nominated for an Epoch Award. Being nominated is an honor, humbling and exciting! Epoch exists to honor unsung heroes. Groups that are quietly going about the business of making life better for others. That is what we believe SPPRAK is about. This past year our mission has seen such an expansion by means of the SPPRAK PACK. This program uses sticky notes to let children write acts of kindness done to them by others, the notes are then posted on a banner for everyone to read. We just returned from Moore OK, where we presented the SPPRAK PACK program to counselors of that school system. What an unbelievable blessing that was to all of us! SPPRAK believes that even the smallest act of kindness can make a huge impact on someone’s day. We want to change the culture in our world, not by yelling and demanding, but by showing kindness toward others. Epoch is giving away a $500 Visa gift card, and SPPRAK could use this to expand the SPPRAK PACK program and our cause to spread kindness. What this would mean to the thousands of school children who participate in our program remains to be seen, however, we believe that if you touch a child, if you cause a change in a child, you can change a family and a community. Thanks Epoch for noticing our work through our nomination!
