This Week’s Best of the Web, Featuring a High School Club’s Compliment Grams

Hey girls! Happy (almost) weekend!

One of our goals here at PI is to bring you the best of the best on the web each week, so we’d love to hear what you are interested in knowing about. What do you love and want to see more of? Let us know in the comments!

Inspirational story of the week:

Kind words really can make a difference, especially in a world with so much bullying. If those words come from people you see every day but don’t know especially well, it can be extra meaningful. We all love to be seen for who we really are!

According to HoopLaHa.com, students at Winfield High School in Winfield, WV have started a movement that’s changing the way students at their school treat each other. They started a group called WeStopHate where they sell compliment grams during lunch for 50 cents.

WeStopHate has since become a full-fledged nonprofit organization that is using social media to help put a stop to bullying. They’re also hoping that the simple acts help promote positive self-esteem and goodwill. Recently, the club organized a drive where they provided Hershey’s Kisses and pieces of construction paper for students to write and send each other compliments throughout the school day.

“We need to break free of all the negativity that surrounds us,” said Jillian Carney, student and founder of the WeStopHate club. “The main goals of WeStopHate club is to give students a safe environment and to provide them a comforting place where they’re free to be themselves.”

    I love the Facebook picture the most!
    I love what those girls are doing but they might be making it worse for the people who don’t get any compliment grams :/

      I thought the same thing, school could still be hurtful to kids who don’t get compliment grams.
