Kindness really does make a difference in our world. The 21 Day Kindness Challenge team is proud of this teen who is reaching out and doing what he can to spread kindness in his community. With a simple yet very helpful act of kindness, this teen made a difference for his neighbor. Thank you, Brett, for reminding us how easy it is to be kind!

Becoming a change agent in the world isn’t an easy thing to do, especially if you are a young child. The Founding Fathers of the United States, Dr. Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi are all great adult examples of change agents but what about kids? Can kids make an impact in their community and their world? Our video pick for this month answers this question.
Leah Nelson, a 10-year-old girl, is challenging others to pass on kindness in her West Sacramento community. Watch the video and be inspired!
Don’t just teach kids to count. Teach them what counts most!* Classrooms around the country now have the opportunity to do just that.
In response to requests from teachers and administrators to meet a “kindness gap," the 21 Day Kindness Challenge has launched its newest program, the 21 Day Kindness Challenge: Classroom Edition. The organization’s new classroom kindness program provides teachers with 21 days of lessons, projects, activities and team meetings that teach kindness, compassion, appreciation and caring.
“Teachers asked for it, and we listened!” says Justina Bryant, founder and president of the 21 Day Kindness Challenge. “Teachers were asking for help to change the culture of their classroom.” Our 21 Day Kindness Challenge: Classroom Edition provides them with all the materials and tools they need to create a kinder, more inclusive, classroom environment.”
Studies have shown that students and teachers reap the benefits of teaching kindness in the classroom.
Teaching kindness has the following results:
The 21 Day Kindness Challenge: Classroom Edition is perfect for K-6 classroom teachers, youth groups, preschools, home-schools, or any small group-based learning environment. This program is a comprehensive, four week program that includes step-by-step weekly theme-based activities to emphasize kindness, caring, appreciation and gratitude. Students and teachers will develop the habit of being kind. The program also dovetails with many of the standards set by Common Core curriculum.
“I’m very excited to launch the 21 Day Kindness Challenge: Classroom Edition. I know our children can change the world, we just need to show them how to be kind, effective and proactive leaders,” said 21 Day Kindness Challenge Founder, Justina Bryant.
In the words of Margaret Mead, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
