Dr. Wang Supports Thurston Middle School’s Kindness Challenge
After wrapping up all her patient visits, Dr. Wang likes to conclude each day at the office with a few minutes of meditation and gratitude practice. “It’s important for me to take a moment to recognize the wellness community around me,” she says. “There are so many great people in Laguna Beach who support wellness initiatives and understand how they can positively impact our community,” said Wang. Take Thurston Middle School, who, along with their PTA, are planning a Kindness Challenge this year.
Thurston Middle School’s Kindness Challenge
The Kindness Challenge is a new fundraising effort recently launched at Thurston Middle School. The goal of the fundraiser is two-fold: kids will be out there raising money for their school, while also thinking of different ways to be kind. “I really like the new fundraiser Thurston has put together because it gives the kids a chance to get outside of themselves and think about being kind to others. Being kind to one another is an important part of overall wellness,” she believes.
As a top sponsor, Wang helped the school launch the program along with other local businesses. “I think it’s great when our community can give back to others, which is why I felt it was important to become an early supporter of Thurston’s Kindness Challenge initiative. We see so much negativity out there in the world today, it can become overwhelming and negatively impact our health,” she says. “So, I was very excited to see this positive initiative coming from our local school. I think that Thurston’s Kindness Challenge has the potential to instill a life-long commitment of being kind and giving back to others, which is so important for the kids in this community.”
Anita Encourages More Acts of Kindness
“One of the ways I encourage students to be kind and give back to our community is by donating healthy food options to The Laguna Food Pantry. A complete list of their donation wish list can be found on their website at lagunafoodpantry.org,” she added.
