CONCORD - Christa McAuliffe Elementary School's third grade teacher, Sharon Richert, has taken a leave of absence doing what she loves, to care for her husband. 36 year-old Michael, was just diagnosed with colon cancer for the second time. Doctors say it's inoperable and his only hope is chemotherapy.
Sharon says since neither one of them can work now, the cancer has taken a financial toll as well as mental and physical. Her students wanted to help.
They came up with the Kindness Campaign. Students write nice messages to friends, teachers or even strangers. 10 year-old, Ryan Sheehan, says, "You send it in an envelope with a dollar each and it will get sent to that person and that person will read the little note that you put on it,"
All the students agree, if they got a note of kindness they would feel pretty good about themselves.
11 year-old, Vanessa Young, added, "I think it's a really good way to raise money because it's not only giving donations to Mrs. Richert and her family, it's also nice to give a friend or a teacher a nice comment about them."
So far the Kindness Campaign has raised over $1100 for the Richert family. That, paired with a fundraising website, has raised over $12,000.
If you want to help, you can donate online to the Richert family.
