A Kid With a Heart of Gold
Sometimes kids present us with the sweetest of gestures, unprompted, like that of Christian Bucks of York, PA. Christian decided that he wanted to help kids who might be feeling lonely on the playground with something called the Buddy Bench, according to this article on the Huffington Post. He had seen one on a trip to Germany and decided that he wanted to give kids a place to find comfort on the playground when they just needed a little company.
When I searched Buddy Bench on Google, I found that it’s actually a thing that people do (who knew?). This square-shaped one is actually a product for sale on Designs for Education, a British website. (I love how the shape of this one promotes conversation.
And this one is also a product for sale on Red Monkey Play, yet another British web store. (I’m noticing a trend here. You?)
And guess where this happy buddy bench is sold? Yep. England, as well.
I don’t know about you, but the UK seems like quite a friendly place! I bet Christian Bucks would agree!
