Everybody can make a difference: that’s the lesson Kelly Clark wanted to teach her students and the reason she came up with the NOBODY mascot – a denim figure that has no interests, abilities, age, gender, ethnic or cultural identity, friends or character.
The mascot becomes somebody when students in elementary and high school classrooms add 3-D attachments to it, symbolizing their work on charitable or community-building projects.

With just a few kind thoughts about incorporating the acts of kindness and sharing into an effort to show that anybody can participate and make a difference, this wonderful program, “Who is Nobody” (WIN) has become a tremendous educational program for teachers and students everywhere.
WIN is exactly that, a win-win-win educational program that makes a difference for everyone. The students learn the benefits of individual efforts that become team-work efforts in bringing their projects together to be a part of making “Nobody become a Somebody”.
Kindness coupled with education, literacy and communication help to build wonderful and lasting social skills and character of the students at the same time contributing to a worthy endeavour.
Just an awesome WIN for all.
