In the days following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newton, Connecticut, a movement began to do good deeds for strangers.
It's called 26 Acts - one act of kindness for each of the victims.
As we all watched, and felt the pain of that event, some students from Tapestry Charter School in Buffalo were inspired to act as well.
They wrote to the Daybreak team, challenging us to report one good story everyday for 26 days.
The Daybreak team listened to their concerns and is happy to accept the challenge.
We promise to report at least one good story every morning during Daybreak for the next 26 days.
And after meeting the students at Tapestry Charter School, we hope you'll agree that they deserve to be the first good story we report.
Not only did they issue the challenge but they also told us about the good deeds they're doing in school, at home, and in the community.
These students truly inspire greatness from others, and we thank them for inspiring us.
