What we do
The Kindness Campaign is on a mission to create and provide accessible emotional health curriculum and programs to both children and adults in homes and classrooms.
Our practical tools address
an ongoing societal problem:
Suicide is currently the second leading cause of death for teenagers, which is why TKC takes a preventative and educational approach to saving lives, starting at age 3 and lasting into adulthood. All TKC curriculum and programming is based on a core message, I AM ENOUGH, and driven by four core pillars: self-image, emotional awareness, empathy, and community.
Here is what we know:
35% of all children have experienced an adverse childhood event, such as abuse, witnessing community violence, or losing a family member, by the time they enter kindergarten*Source: National Survey on Children’s Health
Having two or more adverse childhood events, or ACEs, can negatively impact a child’s education and health
Trauma is not destiny! Neuroplasticity shows us that the brain can grow, heal, and form new connections over a lifetime
We have the power to improve outcomes for young people, by improving their mental and emotional health.
We know adversity, isolation, and bullying exists. But instead of allowing these states to go unchecked, we provide positive and accessible tools that promote emotional health.
Every year, The Kindness Campaign raises funds to support Title 1 elementary schools with our emotional health resources. We are currently finalizing our 2021-2022 school year beneficiaries, and will announce them here August 2021!
