TKC is on a mission to normalize emotional health. We know bullying, loneliness, and isolation exist; instead of allowing these states to go unchecked, we provide positive and accessible tools that promote emotional health. TKC is on a mission to create societal change by teaching emotional awareness, empathy, community building, and most importantly, the development of a healthy self-image.
After suffering the loss of a dear family friend—a child, age 12—to suicide, TKC founder Andra Liemandt started a conversation with her own children about feelings and emotions. Their process inspired Andra to create a rudimentary “feelings journal.” Several printed copies and graphic design trials later, she took them to her daughter’s classroom. When the principal requested journals for the whole school—and soon, for four more campuses—a new nonprofit was born. The Kindness Campaign officially launched in 2015.
All TKC curriculum and programming is based on a core message: I AM ENOUGH. This is the heart and soul of TKC, and expresses our approach to emotional health.
