Spreading Kindness In Big Letters

News

The Garrett Sands Kindness Project continues to thrive in the Wabash Valley with their amazing acts of kindness.

Now the group is reaching more eyes with their message of kindness on a billboard on Highway 41.

Last Spring Garrett Sands was shot and killed.

Since the tragedy Sands’ mother Jayna Sullivan has been spreading love, hope, and kindness across the Valley.

“He is very proud of everything that we are doing in his memory. He would be a little humbled and I think a little surprised. Because kids that age they don’t realize that the kind things that they do matter so much to other people,” said Sullivan.

The billboard was a gift from members of Sullivan’s church, in an effort to continue to honor Sands.

“I want people to know that kindness encourages kindness. And hopefully seeing the word in big print up there, kindness, it will make people think twice and think about doing kind things for others. Because it’s one thing this world definitely needs,” said Sullivan.

The billboard has links to the Facebook and Instagram page of the Kindness Project.

Sullivan and her family encourage folks to participate in the program and post pictures in memory of her son.
