A second-grader at Roundtown Elementary School in York PA had a great idea: Buddy Bench. Christian Bucks knew some of his classmates were lonely at recess and he wanted to make a difference.

It's a brightly colored area that kids can go and sit where they are lonely or just need a friend. Christian had seen the idea in a brochure for a school in Germany. He talked to the prinicpal about the idea, she loved it. She even let Christian help pick the style and colors of the Buddy Bench.

I hope his parents are SUPER proud of their kid! I love this idea. I want a Buddy Bench in our office!
