Be part of the #11forJacob movement
Jacob Wetterling loved sports. His dad coached his soccer team. He wanted to be a football player. He was a skilled hockey goalie. Jacob also believed in a fair and just world, a world where all children know they are special and deserve to be safe.
To remember and honor Jacob’s hope for our world, there are a number of ways you can help or contribute.
We ask you to be part of #11forJacob.
This movement centers around 11 simple traits that Jacob valued:
1. Be fair
2. Be kind
3. Be understanding
4. Be honest
5. Be thankful
6. Be a good sport
7. Be a good friend
8. Be joyful
9. Be generous
10. Be gentle with others
11. Be positive
Remember and use these traits in your family or organization. Add the number 11 somewhere at your next game, concert or event to show your commitment to making the world a better place for kids and then share with us on social media at #11forJacob or #JacobsHopeLives. See the amazing ways this movement is already spreading,
across Minnesota and around the world.
