“Everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always.” Those words are the mantra of the Mighty Meredith Project. Kindness is at the core of the MMP.
When Meredith was at the acute stage of her illness, "her mother would tape the well-wishes and get-well cards to a wall in the corner of her room, soon to be referred to as the cozy corner. Eventually, the cards covered her entire room, making a peaceful and supportive sanctuary where she would escape from long days at the hospital or exhausting days at school. The visual and tangible messages of kindness and love helped Meredith get through some dark days when hope was thin."
When hope was seemingly lost, the mailbox was always a bright part of the day as the long-lost art of cards and hand-written notes brought much joy to Meredith. It was then, Meredith realized the impact one note of kindness can have on someone and has turned that into the guiding light of the Mighty Meredith Project.
On February 16, 2018, the entire North Reading Middle School took the Kindness Pledge.
How are you going to make your world a kinder place? What are you going to do differently tomorrow?
Take the Pledge and commit to kindness. #MMPKind

We promote kindness, especially to those "who are fighting a battle you know nothing about." It was the kindness from so many that got Meredith through the darkest of days for many months. She personally knows the true impact of a note, a word, a gesture and wanted to pay that forward. Therefore, our kindness initiatives focus on those who may be suffering in silence and just need a simple gesture to get through the day.
