Fern K. is a camp counselor in Massachusetts and recently went through a particularly difficult break up with her partner. Understandably, she was feeling down. That’s when a camper took it upon herself to do what Fern calls “the nicest thing anyone has ever done” for her. And the best part? The camper was only 12 years old. It’s never too early to teach kindness.
I just went through a really bad break up a little while ago and my ex, she gave me a teddy bear, and this bear was just sitting on my bunk reminding me of what happened. And this random camper who I didn’t even know just knit me this beautiful teddy bear with stuffing and everything, and she was only, like, 12. And I think that was the nicest thing anyone has ever done for me. And it’s my new little companion at night.
