Resilient: able to withstand or recover from difficult conditions.

If anyone knows about being resilient, it’s Dave.  In March he had rotator cuff surgery, but two months later he’s back doing what he loves- hitting baseballs and sharing experiences and insights with audiences of all ages.

A Pound of Kindness

Tags : 

First grader Dave Clark is worried: There’s a field trip coming up and they’ll have to walk 5 or 6 blocks, but Dave is recovering from polio and wearing leg braces… will he hold up the class?  Then, along comes classmate Ernie Pound with a simple act of kindness that changes everything!

 

All of us at Dave Stevens Speaks are so proud to be a part of this project!   Join in the excitement and consider contributing to the A Pound of Kindness Kickstarter! Proceeds will benefit the Dave Clark Foundation and  D3 Day events where children with disabilities are able to enjoy a day of learning baseball skills and meeting professional athletes.

About the Project: “A Pound of Kindness” is a children’s book about a child with a severe physical disability whose life is a changed when a fellow student performs an act of unforgettable kindness. This story is based on a true-life account of Dave Clark, a first grader suffering from polio, who was shown compassion by classmate Ernie Pound. Unknown to each other, both boys grow up to compete in professional sports.
