Rules of Kindness Campaign is designed to build a culture of caring and empathy among today’s youth.
I love this new Be Fearless, Be Kind campaign from Hasbro and generationOn, the youth service division of Points of Light. Together they have launched Rules of Kindness, a new campaign that encourages kids and teens to create, share and act upon their own Rules of Kindness.
From September 1 through October 17, teens, teachers, parents, and youth leaders can visit Rules of Kindness to sign up, submit their Rules of Kindness, and see how others are putting their Rules into action.
The website features tools and resources for parents and teachers designed to help develop compassionate young changemakers who then put kindness into action through service or simple acts. The website is easy to use. Users can simply type in their zip code on the website to find a list of volunteer projects across the U.S.
The site also includes a list of service project ideas, a toolkit developed in partnership with nonprofit organization, Ashoka, and with pediatric psychologist Dr. Lynne Kenney.
Service project ideas featured on the website include:
- Community Mural: Create a mural that reflects your community’s vision of peace and kindness.
- No Bully Peace Summit: Involve students in reducing bullying on campus, and promoting peace.
- Building Bridges: Bring diverse groups of youth together to create care packages for people in need in your community.
Can you help us reach our goal of getting 75,000 youth volunteers to sign up and join Hasbro and generationOn’s movement for kindness?
To share your story of kindness and see what others are doing, use #RulesofKindness and follow generationOn (@generationOn) and Hasbro (@Hasbro) on Twitter.
p.s. The Rules of Kindness campaign is part of a larger philanthropic campaign that Hasbro will launch this October, focused on developing empathy and kindness among today’s youth.
