In essence, it’s about conservation. But how do we get to a place where everyone understands the importance of conserving the planet’s resources? According to our guest author this week, Nam Ngo Thanh, it all begins with kindness. So on this Earth Day, JRNEY is happy to feature a story about the origins of the Kindness Project and how you can get involved.
Last week, Nam Thanh shared the impact Skype has had on his classroom in Vietnam.

Here's part 1 of Nam's 2 part exploration of Skype in the classroom.
