In the 1920’s, Latham established Kind Deeds Clubs at elementary schools, where the students would be responsible for their club activities. Each student made this Kind Deeds Club pledge as part of their participation.
In becoming a member of the Kind Deeds Club I will try to be kind to every living creature and to cultivate a spirit of protection towards all who are weaker than myself, and I will try to treat animals as I would wish to be treated if I were in their place. – Kind Deeds Club Pledge, The Latham Foundation
Don’t you wish today’s school children would have these clubs ?
