BonafideU is working with Hastings High School to kick off a youth-driven, social media kindness movement.  BonafideU recognizes and rewards kindness AND offers scholarships based on kindness - not athletics or academics. The goal is to influence the way people treat each other and share these stories through social media.  Hastings is planning to host a BonafideU workshop next year and give away a scholarship to a student for their kindness. BonafideU will be here today and tomorrow (Wednesday and Thursday) during lunch to recognize the kindness at HHS – be sure to stop by and check them out!
