After the mass shooting that occurred in El Paso, Texas this weekend, one young boy was feeling like he needed to make a change.

After a discussion with his mom, 11-year-old Ruben Martinez III decided to start the #ElPasoChallenge to spread kindness in a time of tragedy.

So what exactly is the challenge? I'll let him tell you himself -

He challenged El Paso, but we should be challenging the entire country.

So whether you want to participate silently or use the hashtag on social media, let's all try and do something good today.
