Mystery student brings enough valentines for everyone, 1,300!


Students of Troy High School, in Ohio, received a wonderful Valentine’s day surprise yesterday when each student found an origami heart stuck on their locker. The truly impressive part is that all of these hand crafted gifts were made by one anonymous student.

Weaver saw the student, along with a handful of helpers, after school Monday, tirelessly pasting the handmade valentines one by one. In total, the student crafted about 1,300 valentines for students, teachers and staff.

“I can’t imagine the hours she spent doing it,” Weaver said. “I know she had a calendar to mark out how many she needed to make each day.”

The student told Weaver she came up with the plan back in the fall and had been working on the origami hearts since September. But she kept it a secret.

“She hadn’t told anybody,” Weaver explained. “She did this on her own; her parents didn’t even know.”

The school posted about the sweet gesture on Facebook Tuesday afternoon and recieved dozens of replies from parents and people across the country, praising the student’s act of kindness.

We are so thrilled that the youngsters coming up these days have such initiative toward charitable endeavors. We can’t wait to bring you more of them!
