Serving Stories – Ep.2.2 – Humility, Part 2: South Jersey & Detroit
When we encountered the Short kids in southern New Jersey (USA) last year, they showed us that Short people have lots of reasons to live… and lots of ways to give! In this episode, we discover how a few families coming together to serve their cities—with lots of kids of all ages—is motivating other families with kids toward kindness. And we also found how short people can not only learn, but also teach some tall people, about humility.
