An 11-year-old girl is spreading kindness through the streets with flags of gratitude to the frontline professionals.

Morris Township is a typical New Jersey city: there is a fire department and a police department; there is a medical center, fun shops and lively restaurants.

Thanks to the work of a super creative girl – since the March pandemic, frontline people have found some very special items outside of these workplaces.

These are the ‘Flags of Gratitude’ which are all made by 11-year-old Callie Danysh.

She paints the image of each flag of gratitude or tile herself and adds inspiring messages of support and appreciation to each one – so that workers can know how grateful we all are for the work they are doing.

Callie has only one wish: ‘honor the heroes’.

In Morristown, Morris Plains and Morris Township, employees and volunteers from local businesses and organizations have found Flags of Gratitude dedicated to them.

So far, Callie has made an incredible 2,000 flags to encourage and elevate others – all of which can be seen on the Flags of Gratitude page on Facebook.

The list of heroes that Callie is honoring with her art continues to expand.

On November 11, with a little help from a few Sharpie markers and ink pens, she paid tribute to former military men by making special flags to place outside the Veterans of Foreign Wars site in Morris Plains.

Last month, she also made flags for the Morristown Army and Navy Recruitment Center.

As part of her project, Callie is raising money for others: in July, she won $ 1,000 for HelpMorrisNow, which helps bring food and clothing to local needy people.

Now she is raising money for Good Grief, an organization that helps families through losses, and for Hubert’s Animal Welfare. Basically, she is doing whatever it takes to give back to the community.

“It makes me feel really good, because I like to spread kindness to people,” says Callie.

Their designs are being printed on 9-inch photo blocks so people can donate to the charity and have a keepsake that will last forever.

Visit the Facebook page to see how you can get involved – perhaps buying one of Callie’s beautiful tiles? – and help this surprising young woman in her attempt to raise others, one work of art at a time.
