News and updates from your friends at The Kindness Campaign.
Inspired by our PSA that was seen by millions at AMC Theaters nationwide, we co-hosted the National Kindness Challenge with Erin Condren as a way to release kindness into the world. People across the country wrote a kind note for themselves or somebody, left it where it could be discovered, snapped a pic, and posted it on social media.
We loved reading the kind notes so much that we decided to keep the challenge going! During the month of September, we moved the #NationalKindnessChallenge directly into the classroom. Educators nationwide challenged classrooms and communities with daily challenges guided by TKC’s 4 pillars: Self-Image, Emotional Awareness, Empathy and Community. Thank you to everyone who participated! We hope the #NationalKindnessChallenge strengthened your campus community’s emotional well-being, and created an awareness of the power of kindness!
The Back to School Fest at Barton Creek Square and the Kind Shop at Nordstroms Barton Creek were some of our favorite events ever, and we’re still smiling wide from them. We’d like to give a huge thanks to our kind partners – Nordstrom, Kendra Scott, BK Beauty, Bryan Anthonys and Understated Leather, for helping to make it happen. This event would not have been possible without you! Make sure to check out our pics and vids from the event here!
We hosted a Kind5 Day at Akins High School in partnership with our friends at Just Keep Livin’, and it was definitely a day to remember! While many of our programs and curriculum are geared toward elementary school students, our Kind5’s are were created especially for our preteen and teen learners, using interactive stations and workshops for emotional health. We loved spending time with the JKL students, and we were blown away by how deep, creative, encouraging, and supportive they are.
