Walking thru my sons school yard... I noticed a bench on the pavement with bright paint around it. I asked my son "is that the only place to sit around here lo!" And he said "no, that's the buddy bench! When someone feels lonely or they have nobody to play with, they sit there and people ask them to play" Wow. Amazing. then told him how awesome that was and asked if he has ever used it? He said "yeah, when I was new I sat there and someone came to me and asked me to play. I felt happy. And now when I see kids on it, I ask them to play with me... We all do".
