In the spring of 2020, the Covid-19 virus changed the world and made daily life much more challenging. We had to stay apart, away from work, school, and our normal routines. But, all around the world, kids came up with creative and thoughtful ways to help others. From making 3-D printed medical equipment to food bank fundraising to a neighbourhood joke stand, to creating a semi-automatic hand-washing machine, kids made a difference in their communities. Let's celebrate and take inspiration from their stories.
"The stories in What Kids Did are an uplifting counterpoint against the news of the day. They also offer a great, approachable way to discuss the pandemic with the young people in your life, and to offer positive, true stories of how even the youngest and smallest amongst us can make a difference."
