Guri and friends took the SSp interns practice of daily kind acts and turned it into a 21-day kindness challenge, that ended up inspiring thousands of people around the globe. One of them was an elementary school social worker in New York -- Florri. She wrote, "Sadly, last Friday we lost a 15 year old girl in our district. While the cause of her death hasn't been confirmed yet, we do know that she was heavily drug involved. Unfortunately many communities on Long Island have become drug infested.

On February 26th, they held a school assembly to celebrate their kindness challenge and I skyped in to sing "Being Kind" and also to express my gratitude to them:
