Some went into the night all stealthy-like, others gathered in large groups but  Sidewalk Chalk Love was all about community this year. Hundreds of kids, parents, teachers, administrators, lovely photographers, artists, even kind friends in the neighborhood, people all over the country left notes of love and encouragement for students everywhere! 

I was amazed by how some schools had 30, 40 and even 50 people show up to chalk, teachers asked and their administrations took on the project together, kindness trees were popping up everywhere, there just seemed to be a special togetherness this year. The pictures are still pouring in and you can check some of them out at the Guerrilla Goodness Flickr Pool. You can also e-mail me with your photos at  Be sure to let us know if you participated so we can add your kindness work to the ever-growing list.

Thank you, thank you everyone for making this year so very special!
