Earlier this month, a vile ice bucket prank
targeting a teenager with autism made the rounds on the internet. It was so bad that celebrities like Drew Carey offered
a reward for finding the ones behind the prank.
Thankfully, the police were able to identify
the culprits. So case closed right? Justice is about to be served.
Well, not so fast, because for the children and staff of Little Star Center, a non-profit therapy center for children with autism in Carmel, Indiana, an act of kindness can serve as an icing on the cake of justice. So they decided to do something nice
for the victim.
The idea came to Mary Rosswurm, the executive director of the center and mother to a 23-year-old daughter with autism. When she heard about the prank, she took it upon herself to assemble a team to create a 'nice bucket', which is a bucket filled with handwritten notes of support and treats for the victim, gathered by children and staff of Little Star. They even brought it to the 2014 Answers for Autism walk, where participants added their own notes. They plan on shipping it to the victim on October 6.
"Be nice to people," said Rosswurm. "That's really the message."
