What will happen:
We are SUPER EXCITED to announce that our school is going to be taking on a massive kindness challenge and its launching with an assembly that we’d love to invite you to.
Cottage Hill is hosting one of the nations Top Youth Speakers, Brian Williams, to challenge our kids to a massive 15 Day Kindness challenge. Brian speaks to over 100,000 students each year, he has documented over 1.5 million acts of kindness, and is the co-author of the children’s book ‘Kindness Ninja’. Brian is the founder of Think Kindness, a non-profit that inspires measurable acts of kindness in schools across the country.
Our school challenge will launch with a fun and exciting motivational assembly (you're welcome to come!). During the assembly Brian be telling some amazing stories, dancing, telling jokes but most importantly inspiring students to make a difference through simple random acts of Kindness.
But rather than just talk . . . we are going to call them to action!
THE CHALLENGE = Document 5,000 acts of kindness!
The entire student body will be challenged to document 5,000 acts of kindness. Each student will record all of the kind deeds they perform for one another at home and at school. In addition, students will receive daily Kindness ideas. So don’t be shocked if you see a little more Kindness around the house!
Challenge #2 – Global Impact
During the assembly, students will hear stories, see pictures and watch videos of kids their own age in Kenya. But one big difference is that these children have never worn a pair of shoes in their life! We are going to challenge the entire school to collect gently used sneakers that will be sent to needy children and families around the globe. So go through your closet to see if you have any sneakers you don’t wear anymore. (also ask your friends, family and neighbors!) Important – we are only collecting sneakers. Please don’t bring boots, flip-flops, slippers, etc.
To help us make an even bigger impact, we want to ask you to engage in conversation with your students about the subject of Kindness. Ask them about what they’ve done, acknowledge what they do, and encourage the simple life skill of Kindness.
Date: Wednesday, August 29th
