The newly formed Newtown kindness organization announces the First Annual Charlotte Bacon Act of Kindness Awards.

The organization and program were founded in memory of Charlotte Bacon, a victim of the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy. It was established to foster a kindness mindset in children. The Charlotte Bacon Act of Kindness Awards recognizes special kids who complete acts of kindness, then write in or draw pictures that are sent to the organization to tell the story.

The program has seen participation from thousands of children around the world in just eight short weeks. All children will be recognized in some fashion, but the top award winners were announced on Charlotte Bacon’s birthday, February 22nd, during an emotional but amazing event at ‘Healing Newtown’ in Newtown, CT.
