It’s a simple concept, with a large-scale impact. Think reaching 10,000 teachers and 750,000 students was cool in 2011/2012? Now we are going to reach nearly 50,000 teachers with kindness this 2012/2013 school year, and pledge 1,750,000 kids to kindness, and here’s how it’s happening.
Students can make the promise to themselves and their classmates to focus on the positive power of kindness in their schools – and then show that commitment by signing The Be Kind Pledge™. One by one, students can stand up and be counted. Everyone can participate….every student counts….and the results can be awesome.
Let’s show that a million kids care about positive relationships and behavior in schools. It’s easy to get involved — click here to see how.
The Be Kind People Project™ provides a special gift of encouragement and recognition inside the Classroom Kindness Kit for the 50,000 teachers who give from their heart to the children they teach every day. It lets them know how much they are appreciated and needed, 365 days a year!
The gift includes a Teacher Appreciation Gift and Thank You message, designed to thank and encourage the teacher to continue the commitment and dedication. It also includes a Be Kind Kid™ Pledge cards and instructional aids that inspire positive conversations about kindness in the classroom. We have already seen thousands of kids take the pledge!
Our generous sponsors also include a variety of fun products for each teacher.
(And read more about how the first kits were assembled and produced! It was a fun-filled evening at a private event called Holiday Crafts, Cheers & Laughs®, with 400 women with hearts filled with gratitude and hands willing to help.)
We are looking for 2,000,000 kids to take the Be Kind Kid™ Pledge! We’ve already distributed thousands of pledge cards… and you can bring the Pledge to any school near you!
We offer the pledge cards, and also a free download (Side 1 and Side 2) of the pledge sign-up sheet! Have your class sign the sheet, go to Facebook or our website and tell us how many kids signed up! And kids can use the pledge cards as a reminder to carry with them of how to be a Kind Kid!
Our assemblies are high-energy and loads of fun, with our Be Kind Crew™ to pump up the kids with hip music and spoken word, and teach them just what it means to be kind in the classroom, on the playground, at home and everywhere. Students are given Thank You notes to write to their teachers, and t-shirts, posters and pledge cards are given out.
Gestures of kindness can be found anywhere at any time. Tell us how taking the time to be kind can have a positive impact on others, and enter to win prizes! Details are coming soon. Enter by January 25, 2013! Read more…

We partner several times each year with Subway Cycle for Success to honor students in Arizona who exhibit positive character and are influential in their classrooms. Teachers nominate students, and The Be Kind People Project selects two students per quarter. Subway Cycle for Success provides a new bike, helmet and lock. And most of all, together, we promote a healthy approach to life. Read more…
