Kindness is a choice by Grace Wu

Love will never fade because kindness is a choice. This year was unexpected, but that doesn’t stop us from helping out those in need.
I am the youth volunteer leader of the Super Joey Foundation (superjoey.org) Bay Area Chapter, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting families and children fighting childhood cancer. We donated thousands of masks and PPE to local doctors and the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in our community throughout the year. We also donated food and Christmas gifts to the children and families living at the RMH.
Although interactions with them have to be limited, it was still a rewarding experience. Being able to support the people struggling through this pandemic helped me understand the impact of even the smallest acts of kindness. We are one community, which means being there for each other during all the ups and downs.
