Neha Gupta’s Ripple Effect To Take Over Penn State Today

Neha Gupta and the Collective Project will attempt to spread kindness around Penn State today, asking students and faculty to make their own ripple effect.

After receiving the International Children’s Peace Prize, Gupta was also awarded the opportunity to work with two other students from across the country on the Collaborative Project. The project is sponsored by Microsoft OneNote and highlights collaboration for the benefit of others.

Gupta and Microsoft will take over Heritage Hall with their #RippleEffect event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. today to help raise awareness for Gupta’s non-profit charity Empower Orphans. Throughout the day, “good deed ambassadors” will perform random acts of kindness around campus, while encouraging other students to do the same. There will also be a “good deed wall,” where students can select acts of kindness as well as shirts for sale benefitting Gupta’s charity.

Participants are encouraged to share their experience on social media by using the hashtags #RippleEffect and #CollectiveProject.

“It is our time to be the igniters of change,” Gupta said. “Convert your empathy into actions. And then let those actions ripple out.”
