Quick Overview

Kickoff Assembly: Student leaders inform and challenge the entire school to take on the 21 Day Kindness Challenge.

Daily Reminders: Homeroom teachers & students watch 1-3 minute daily videos (optional) which encourage discussions about kindness and values. Acts of kindness are read over the intercom to encourage acts of kindness.

Recording Acts: When someone (teachers, students, staff,etc.) witness someone doing an act of kindness or if they do an act of kindness for another person they write the act of kindness on a kindness card and drop it in a kindness box ans/or participants can utilize social media with a school assigned hastag.

The Celebration: Students & teachers design a day of celebration. The sky is the limit!
Invite others in the community to join you for the kickoff & celebration (president of the U.S.A. perhaps)

Encourage home discussions between students & parents about the acts of kindness they are planning on doing

Parents: ask your child about the acts of kindness they did or witnessed at the end of the day

Join in on the fun. Kindness Challenge leaders have access to additional kindness project ideas that schools can send home with the students

Getting Ready for the
Kindness Challenge
The 21 Day Kindness Challenge makes the greatest impact when the entire school, student body and community are involved. Here are some questions to find out if you are ready to bring the Kindness Challenge to your campus...
Who will spearhead the Kindness Challenge at your school?
- This person can be a teacher, a principal, a counselor, librarian, a custodian, or a parent.

Can you identify and recruit an assistant to help run the Kindness Challenge at your school?
- This person can also be a teacher, a principal, a counselor, librarian, a custodian, high school/college student and/or a
parent.

Do you have an active and engaged student leadership program? At the middle and high school level, do you have clubs on campus that will take charge of the 21 Day Kindness Challenge?
- It is helpful to have a student group that is already formed but you don't have to - you can form a special after school
kindness club to run the 21 Day Kindness Challenge, or you can select student representatives from each class to help
with running the Kindness Challenge.

Do you have the support of your faculty and staff?
- Frankly it is more fun when everyone gets involved! Within our program we have lots of ideas on way to include the
entire school community.

Can you hold a school-wide kick-off assembly?
- A kickoff assembly brings the school together to ensure that everyone knows how to measure their acts of kindness.
This doesn't have to be done all at once - some schools breakup the different grade levels because they do not have a
large enough space to hold the entire school community.

Do you have a commitment to making a difference in your school community and in the lives of children?
- Of course you do - or you wouldn't have signed up for more information about the 21 Day Kindness Challenge! What
are you waiting for? Make a big impact at your school by bringing the Kindness Challenge to your campus!
