“You don’t have to be famous or rich to do a good deed. No matter how small it may seem, each kind deed sends a rippling action of kindness to humanity. Whether it is donating, helping the donor to implement or ensuring the donation recipients are treated right, each one of us has a role in philanthropy.” ― Gloria D. Gonsalves

World Children’s Poetry Day (WoChiPoDa) was founded in 2014 when author and poet Gloria D. Gonsalves decided to act on an idea she had while walking through the Fairy Tale Forest of Altenberg, Germany. First, she considered it a poem prompt; however, the mysterious, tall, green trees hung with moss won’t settle for a prompt. After two hours of walking, she was haunted by WoChiPoDa.
