I attended the NSC conference in 2015 where I was able to meet Dr. E. Scott Geller and attend some of his seminars. He gave these wristbands out and I ended up with some, however I didn't put one on until a while ago when I moved and came across them. Seeing the separation in the country and all the negativity made me want to put it on and continue the AC4P movement here in Washington State, with hopes others will as well. Dr. Geller opened my eyes to a lot of things in such a small amount of time, but his philosophy on behavior is something that really interests me. I hope we can all band together and create a positive change!

My name is Oscar, a junior majoring in Human Development, who's hometown is in the suburbs of New York City. I'm a first generation American as my parents both immigrated from Guatemala and are proud citizens of the United States. They met each other, eventually got married and turned out having a total of 3 kids, a younger brother who is a freshman here at Tech, and my younger sister who's in the third grade. I just wanted to let you know a little more about my background because my family means the world to me, and has shaped who I am today. I love, breathe, sweat, sleep, and dream Virginia Tech. It has been my dream school since I was a young kid (football was the reason I knew this school from Blacksburg, Virginia). This place means a lot to me and have had the privilege to meet some wonderful people along these past 3 years. So how did I get this bracelet you're probably wondering...and if you're still reading thank you! Here's how I got the bracelet: Today was the last class of my Intro to Psychology class, taught by Dr. Scott E. Geller. I have learned a lot during his class, and I'm not just speaking about material I need to know for the rest...rather, things that will make me a better person for the rest of my life. Professor Geller truly wants his students to not only do well in his class, but to do well in LIFE. He is full of kindness, empathy, and respect. He spreads it in class and you can just feel it. Anyways, since today was the last day of class I decided to approach him and thank him for a wonderful (half) semester. I told him how much I enjoyed his class even though my grades may not reflect it, how much his lectures meant to me personally, and how he is one of the best professors I've had here at Tech. He said "you just made my day" and gave me his wristband and told me to pass it on. I thought it was important to tell him all of this because I may not be able to see him again, and thought it was necessary. I think in life we tend to be so focused on the future, and rarely appreciate the present...what we have in the NOW. I had to thank him, it was the least I could do. I find it important to let people know how they make you feel, and I definitely wanted to let him know how he made a positive impact on me. I will definitely pass this bracelet on, and continue to actively care for people!

It happened in Chinese New Year, which is a little bit later than normal New Year. I barely remember it, because I was busy with my mid-term exams. I did not expect any new year gift or so. However, when I got home, I saw a sticker on my door, which says, "happy Chinese New Year!". Besides that, there was a present bag, a sweater was inside. I was so moved. It was from my neighbor, a little girl. I gave some candy and a Thanks notes in front of her door. I felt there was a connection had been building through these caring behaviors.

I witnessed a college aged male standing beside his recently broken down vehicle in a parking lot near a main road give a random passerby $20 after being asked. Even though this student was experiencing a small crisis himself, he still did not hesitate to give something to someone in need.

During spring break, I went home to New Jersey and was around my high school friend. As we were hanging around each other’s cities, he asked me to go with him to the YMCA. As we went to the YMCA, my friend had volunteered to teach young kids about school, interacting with kids playing board games, serving the kids’ lunch, and teaching kids about life when they get older. Just watching my friend volunteer his time to help the young youth, inspired me to one day do the same. His desire, emotion and passion to caring for the children teaching them things they will learn in the future made me appreciate everything in life. After he volunteered talking to the kids, I thanked him for caring for the children and showing kindness. Then I gave him the Actively Caring For People bracelet and told him to pass it on to other people that he sees showing and acting kindheartedness.

I was struggling to find a parking spot and I was going to take a test, and when I was about to leave to another parking area, I see a girl waving at me and telling me that she is about to leave early and I can take her spot. I waved at her and thanked her and as I about to park into the spot she hands me a parking receipt that covers the next two hours for my spot. I gave her the bracelet and I thanked her for he act of kindness. If it were not for her I would be late for my test that day.

I'm a Police Officer for the city of Norfolk, Va. Myself and two other Officers were assisting a stalled motorist out of the roadway in a particularly heavily trafficed and accident prone stretch of E. Little Creek Rd (1000 block). We were pushing an elderly Gentlemens vehicle who had stalled into the parking lot of Rite Aid. Mr. Zeshan Ahmed observed us doing this and took it upon his self to assist us in pushing this elderly gentlemans vehilce to a safer location So he could wait for AAA towing. Because of this I would like to recognize Mr. Ahmed for his good deed. This was a good deed because he took it upon himself to assist us without any request on our behest. Because of this, I would like to thank you, as well as The city of Norfolk Police Department.

I received a bracelet from Dr. Geller who was a speaker at our annual VMI Leadership Conference in May of 2015. I passed along my bracelet to my son Jonathan for the way he is so very loving and thoughtful. He is always giving hugs, telling people he loves them and asking if he can help. Jonathan is six and in first grade. We have talked about the purpose of the bracelet and I have challenged him to pass along his bracelet.

My wife and I went to the Keep Denton Beautiful event last Saturday, our small part of the 2015 Great American Cleanup. We brought our eight-month-old daughter, Cami, with us, who already has quite the following. See, both Kim and I are graduate students at UNT, and both of our departments have been so supportive, and fallen head-over-heels in love with our little squish! We were worried about how difficult it would be to have a baby while trying to finish our degrees. I took last semester off so I could be home with her, and have had to adjust to getting back into the swing of classes and work and research on campus. Time is precious, we feel like there is never enough. However, we don't want Cami to miss out on the chance to be a part of the community. So whenever we can we bring her with us. Someone noticed how much time I spend with our little one, and said that whatever we did, the most important thing was to just be there. Be there for her trials and triumphs. Be there for her first steps and her first words. Be there for all the little moments that don't get posted on Facebook or Instagram. Be there even when you have deadlines and stresses of your own. Just be there. So, here I am. Actively caring for my precious little daughter. I know, not exactly heroic. Its something we all do. But it felt great to share in that moment with the whole community.
