ATLANTA-- If you look back on your life, most of us can name one person who believed in us, who made a difference, who changed our path in life. Many of those people are teachers.
It's why the Atlanta Alive crew loves to surprise teachers with Random Acts of Kindness. Rhonda Turner came to our attention because she's not afraid to get her hands dirty.
Turner partnered with Home Depot and the Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation to bring an annual garden to Narvie J. Harris Elementary School. The project was designed to educate and empower children to make healthier food choices, avoid unhealthy foods, and learn about the principles of gardening.
"The objective is to empower children with applicable training that shows them that healthy eating is easy when you go from farm to table. We want to give children a proper foundation of how to eat healthy and organic foods." said Lori A. Manns, President of Live Healthy & Thrive Youth Foundation, Inc.
Atlanta Alive's Matt Pearl surprised Turner with $300 in gift cards to Home Depot so she can continue to build her garden. The dedicated teacher also received a gift to spoil herself after all that hard work in the dirt: a $100 gift card to Spa Sydell.
