An 11-year-old girl from Morris Township is showing just how far one small act of kindness can go. It all started as a service project through Callie Danysh's Cub Scouts, a project to honor a local hero. But with the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, the assignment was put on hold. That's when "Flags of Gratitude" was born. "I though to myself why honor one hero when I can honor all of them," Callie said. Flags of Gratitude was a way to say thank you to all of the health care workers and first responders working to keep the community safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “It makes me feel really good, because I enjoy spreading kindness to people, and it makes me feel like I really appreciate them," Callie said. Callie has designed, decorated and hand-delivered nearly 2,000 flags to people in the community since March. The flags, all unique, include pictures and handwritten notes signed by Callie.
