CARMEL, IN. — An Indiana center for autism is showing Northeast Ohio some love.

According to WTHR, the Little Star Center is loading up a “nice bucket” with messages of support for a Bay Village student.

The 15-year-old boy with autism thought he was recording an ice bucket challenge video, but instead of cold water, he allegedly had human waste dumped on him.

The story prompted the director of the center to take action by filling a “nice bucket” with special cards and treats for the student.

“As a mom of a child with autism and just working with these wonderful kids with autism, it just broke my heart and I thought, “Gosh, why can’t we be nice to each other? And I thought, “why can’t we send him a ‘nice’ bucket” and it started as simple as that,” said Mary Rosswurm, Executive Director of the Little Star Center.

Bay Village police have identified five teenagers involved. They handed off the investigation to the juvenile division of the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s office.

It will decide if any charges will be filed.
