Beyond the Book: #PuffinsUnite

Inspired by the book, the #PuffinsUnite action encourages readers to send postcards with encouraging messages to others, whether it’s students in other places or to organizations that support those who might need extra love: nursing homes, homeless shelters, Meals On Wheels groups, LGBTQIA organizations, racial justice organizations or simply individuals who could use a boost. It’s amazing how the simple act of sending a postcard can make us both feel connected – and to realize the power each of us has inside. Because we have the power to send out ALL KINDS of ripples of kindness into the world! (Find out more here.)
