Over 500 San Diego Schools holding ‘Great Kindness Challenge’

On Monday, January 22nd, San Diego County schools kicked off the 7th annual Great Kindness Challenge-School Edition.

Presented by Kids for Peace, a Carlsbad-based nonprofit, this is one week where students do as many kind acts as possible, choosing from a 50-item checklist. What started with three Carlsbad schools in 2012, has now grown to over ten million students in all 50 states.

This positive, proactive, and powerful week will mobilize students nationwide to create school climates that are respectful, compassionate and kind.

Schools want to proactively create a culture of kindness on their campuses. With all that’s going on in the country and in the world, there is a call for kindness. The Great Kindness Challenge answers that call and provides an opportunity for students to unite and demonstrate that KINDNESS MATTERS.
