Hundreds of students gathered virtually during the Start With Hello Week Pep Rally to share in the excitement and enthusiasm of the call-to-action campaign.
Nearly a thousand students nationwide registered to participate in the excitement. Many schools also held watch parties where dozens of teenagers gathered in their classrooms proudly wearing green, holding up signs of love and kindness, while cheering on their classmates!
About 20 schools created videos about their own Start With Hello Week activities to be shared during the event.
