On Earth Day, April 22, Rachael Paulson, children's author and founder of HOWGlobal (Hands on the World global), and I, did an event on recycling at my former school in Newark, NJ called Oliver Sreet School. The event was a presentation where Rachael discussed the inspiration behind her first book (which was followed by a sequel) called "Sir Johny's Recycling Adventure". After, she showed the kids how to recycle paper by hand. I never thoguht that recycling would lift the spirits of so many kids, but let me tell you, they all adored it! There were two sessions, each with about 200 kids. The first session began around 9:45 a.m., ending around 10:15, and the next started immediately after, ending around 10:50. The kids from the school all created a huge and beautiful mural for Rachael to bring to Africa and give to the underprivledged children there.  (To finish reading the story, please click here!)

We can't judge a person by what he says but by what he does.
