Will you be our Valentine?



Cornell students in Kari Koenig’s 4K class display valentines they made for a little boy in Illinois, who only received a few cards from his classmates over the love-filled holiday. After seeing Logan’s story online, Cornell resident Stephanie Seidlitz worked with the Cornell and Gilman schools to provide numerous valentine wishes for the little boy. Seidlitz says she is humbled to see so many come together to make a little boy happy, and that it is her hope to show kids that actions can be hurtful.

Valentine’s Day can be fun when you’re in elementary school, but sometimes, not every student receives a card from their classmates. That’s what happened this year to one little boy in Illinois.

After Cornell resident Stephanie Seidlitz saw through Facebook that the little boy – Logan – had only received seven valentines from his class of 20, Seidlitz took matters into her own hands.

“With tears running down my cheeks, I shared this story with my children,” said Seidltiz. “I had to try to explain to my children why this happened.”
