As 2020 comes to a close, we reflect on the acts of kindness and gratitude that have shone through what sometimes felt like an endless stream of bad news. That’s why we wanted to share with you a heartwarming project. Children from Malvern Primary School in Melbourne created 650 thoughtful letters, which were delivered to scientists at Hudson Institute and researchers around Australia, in a much-appreciated morale boost.
The Gratitude Project, the brainchild of Hudson Institute researcher Dr Sarah Meachem, invited children during the first remote learning period to write letters thanking scientists for their work improving people’s lives, including on the coronavirus. The story featured in the Herald Sun newspaper.
We hope you enjoy the selection of children’s letters as much as we have.
