Program aims to encourage students to pay-it-forward

Posted: Updated:
GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

The 18-month-old program started by Phil Shalz, Blueberry Ambassadors, aims to get students from 8- to 18-years-old to do random acts of kindness.

“In the next four or five months, the kids will be out in the community doing random acts of kindness as a pass it forward. If you get one of the blueberry cards that the kids will be handing out, hopefully you’ll see that and you’ll do random acts of kindness as well,” Shaltz said.

One thousand students from across Genesee County showed up in Flint for the kickoff party.

The program is open to students that attend public and private schools and students that are home-schooled.
