While waiting to pick up my
little boy from a local Jewish Community Center playgroup, a teenager walked by, wearing a
tee-shirt with a message that sent a chill through my veins. In large bold letters
it claimed: "Bad has arrived and is here to stay."

"bad" will be dispelled, and the power of evil shattered. Hence,
the idea to promote acts of kindness and generosity. And what better way, than in
