Mary Roth and Lisa Axelrod are the founders of <a href="http://www.thekindnessconnection.org/" target="_blank">The Kindness Connection</a>. It&rsquo;s an organization that helps create service learning projects for Chicago-area kids.&nbsp;The idea is to help children develop an interest in volunteering from an early age, making it more likely they&rsquo;ll be involved in service projects later in life.</p></p> Thu, 10 Mar 2011 16:35:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/episode-segments/2011-03-10/global-activism-getting-young-kids-involved-service-83495
