Jillian Carney Inspires Kindness in Winfield, WV

Jillian Carney, a high school student in Winfield, WV, made her own social media movement. Tired of watching teens get bullied, Carney created the WeStopHate Club — A safe haven where kids can be themselves and “break free from all the negativity.”

To encourage kindness among the students at Winfield High School, the WeStopHate Club created compliment-grams for people to purchase during lunch for $.50 a piece. Each gram comes with an encouraging compliment and two delicious Hershey kisses.

“It just affects people so much,” says Emily, a student and member of the club. “And it makes them feel so good about themselves. It undoes a lot of the negative effects people have on them. And I really wanted to be involved with something that had such a positive impact.”

Other students also insist that WeStopHate has changed the school for the better. It’s made Westfield a more pleasant environment to learn in and has shown courageous kids that they CAN make a difference in their lives and the lives of others.

    Great article! Being from wv I am proud to see this in a local school. However, please note that in the last paragraph you called the school westfield and not Winfield twice.
