Benjamin needed information on expense reports and I offered him to long in at my desk and assisted him and explained the reimbursement process. I then set him up in booking tool so he can book his travel. He thanked me for going above and beyond the normal job responsibility.

I'm a current student at Virginia Tech who received my AC4P wristband from a VT graduate, Justin Graves. I helped Justin when he was visiting Virginia Tech with something, and he passed a bracelet onto my friend and I for helping. Today, I was able to pass that wristband onto Matt Dauby, a VT baseball player who has worked hard here and beyond Blacksburg to raise awareness for Autism and mental health. He received a check for over $5,000 during his senior game today to go to Autism awareness and then received an award for his sportsmanship, care for his teammates, and overall impact on the team. I can't think of anyone more deserving at the end of his college career. Congrats Matt, thanks for caring for others, and go Hokies!

I received my wristband from Dr. Geller at the Virginia Tech relay for life. I attended a caregiver & survivor dinner with my husband who is a current Lymphoma patient. Next month I will finish my master's degree in counseling and I think that really added to how much I love this idea of actively caring. As a caregiver I love it even more, because so many people in our lives have actively cared for us after my husband was diagnosed. I can't wait to pass on my band and see what good it will be able to witness.

Scott Geller gave me this wristband for commenting the importance of the central theme in his new book. Active Caring of people in family and work and community relationships is for everyone. Many thanks to Scott for developing this idea and reaching out in this way. I hope this wristband 121650, a humble number, becomes a witness to many caring experiences through its wearers. May it make all of us better human beings in this complex world.

Well, I guess this will be the story of how I got involved. I just finished a semester of Intro to Psychology, and I have to say, Dr. Geller really made a difference. I felt like I needed to let him know how much he has changed my perspective on things. Lately, I've been just pushing through school, desperately trying to make something of it and enjoy it. I also felt like I just had to get through my CLE's (core classes) so they wouldn't waste my time. When he started teaching the class half way through the semester, I kind of started to enjoy his talks. The vibes int he room became more relaxed and discussion-oriented. He just made me want to learn more. Not many professors or teachers have made me feel this way. At the end of the last class, I felt like he should know, since he said before that he likes to hear how influencing he can be. As I waited in line, I saw that he was handing out these wristbands- as recognition and rewards for approaching him, whatever the matter was. Receiving a wristband was not my objective. When it was my turn, I said "Oh it's okay, I don't want a wristband." He then asked why. I said, "because I just do things for people because I like to." For me, it was how I was raised, and I felt no need to receive a wristband. He then said "Well, this just means you are a part of the movement, and you can pass this along." I gladly accepted- how could I say no? Caring and being respectful to those around me, despite most of them not replicating, I feel is a way of living. And yes, i want people to become aware that this is just what this society needs, to ACTUALLY care for those around them, even if those people are complete strangers. So that's the story- probably not what you expected. Maybe by participating in this movement- having accepted the deed by accepting the wristband- could push this just a bit further, just like what everyone else on this site is doing. Thank you Dr. Geller, and I look forward to making this society improve.

I received this wristband from Professor Geller when I went to speak to his class today about the study abroad opportunity that is offered by the Pamplin business school at Virginia Tech. You get the opportunity to actively care about someone by working with NGO's when you travel to either Rwanda, Kenya or Ethiopia for either 5 weeks on the fall trip, or 2 weeks on the spring trip.
