Alexander Camelton is a character created and voiced by Marley The Messenger. The rapping camel appears on "Spread Kindness (Not Germs)," a children's video series originally developed by Arts for Learning (The Virginia Affiliate of Young Audiences) in order to help children cope with COVID-19. The series uses puppets and music to equip children to deal with the effects of the pandemic and the emotions it evokes. Season 2, which launched January 2023, focuses on general social-emotional wellness for elementary students, with topics ranging from self-control and facing your fears to persistence and goal-setting.

Arts for Learning Virginia is the leading provider of quality arts-in-education programming in Virginia. They offer an array of arts performances and workshops grounded in the core curriculum, residencies for children of all ages, and professional development in arts-integration techniques that improve students’ literacy skills, motivation to read, and ability to learn.

"Spread Kindness (Not Germs)" episodes and music videos are now available. The music videos come with complete, age-appropriate lesson plans and a lyric book so students can sing along with the tunes.
