We hear a lot about campaigns, especially political ones, but let’s take a step away from the need to “approve this message” and talk about another kind of campaign. One that we all desperately need today.
It’s Kind Campaign.
In 2009, Lauren (Parsekian) Paul and Molly (Stroud) Thompson wanted to find a way to start a conversation about the various forms of aggression present in schools. They decided to hop in a minivan with their moms, travel across the country, talk to people about their experiences with aggression, and film what they found.
The result is their film Finding Kind. (Check out the trailer below!)
Since making their film, Lauren and Molly have started an international movement to help develop positive relationships between students, especially females, in schools all over the world. From their film to their assembly program to their Kind Club Curriculum, schools everywhere are getting involved.
Here is your chance to get involved!
On Thursday, August 28, 2014, at 7:00 PM there will be a free screening of Kind Campaign’s documentary film, Finding Kind Upper Moreland Free Public Library. The documentary has been made available through the generosity of Kind Campaign and the independent film website IndieFlix and their “Free to be Kind” initiative.
The film is excellent for students (recommended for age 11 and up), educators, parents, guardians, friends, coaches, community leaders, and anyone else who wants to help promote kindness to replace aggression. If you join us, you’ll see the film and leave with some tangible ways to establish kindness in your community. It will be a wonderful evening. Please come share it with us!
