Meet Jade Salmon this week's Ben's Bells Bellee! Jade was nominated by Mat Schildt for her selflessness and kindness. Mat first met Jade in 6th grade at Doolen Middle School in Band. They sat next to each other and always had fun together. In 2015, Mat and Jade were both students at University High School. During that time, Mat was struggling with trauma-induced depression and dissociations. The person who consistently offered him support was Jade. She was always there to help when he needed it by telling a joke to try to get him to laugh. Jade's happiness and humor truly helped Mat through a very challenging and uncertain time. She is one of the kindest and most selfless people, putting others before herself at all times!
If you know someone who spreads kindness within the Greater Tucson or Phoenix community, nominate them for a Ben's Bell! bensbells.org/kindness-education [bensbells.org].
