Event: Monthly Meeting: May 2: Do you have a CAPE? Creating A Positive Environment – a night of empowerment, encouragement and validation – for all ages

May 2, 2017 @ 7:00 pm


Amy Logan, author of A Girl with a Cape (and now A Boy with a Cape), will teach us how to rock the CAPE!  Creating Action with Positive Encouragement to help Create A Positive Environment.  Amy’s mission with her books is not only to send a good message to anyone who reads it, but to start a movement–to rock the CAPE!

Amy teaches people, especially children, to use kindness when they speak and encourages kids to focus on the positive things they do and say.  She teaches kids to “get their kindness on” by teaching them that they are leaders and mentors, which allows them to have an impact on people around them and on their future. Her kindness cards and CAPE cards allows kids to leave a trail of good deeds behind them, like by looking people in the eye and saying a greeting any time of day or by inviting someone to sit with you at lunch.

Amy’s Kindness Gala Foundation helps charities such as Camp Out from Cancer and Tinley Wish, both of which helps families dealing with catastrophic illnesses.

Her web site even has a “Rock the CAPE” pledge we can print out.  An exerpt:  “The world needs more people like YOU.  Be a superhero and let others look up to you.  You set the example…are you ready? Who are you going to encourage?  Inspire?”
