During the month of December 2013, we had the opportunity to work with the 6th grade classroom teachers and students at RJ Bailey Elementary in White Plains, NY.  Dr. Nikki Josephs, one of our Board of Directors, who is a professor at Manhattanville College and the Professional Development Liaison to RJ Bailey Elementary, asked 6th grade teachers and students to see if they would be interested in a service project. Without any hesitation the teachers and students were very excited to help spread inspiration, motivation, and cheer to the 2nd grade classrooms of Plaza Tower Elementary in Moore, Oklahoma,

The teachers and students, and all involved with Give More HUGS wanted to help spread holiday cheer to the students of Moore, Oklahoma.  So each student signed a book with a special message in hopes of spreading cheer, inspiration, motivation, encouragement, and love.  There were close to 100 books signed!

It is an honor to know a group of teachers who teach their students about service projects and helping the community, and a group of students who selflessly give back to their community and others around the world.
