There are so many amazing charities out there that you can consider donating to on Giving Tuesday. But here’s why we think you should donate to Kindness Grows Here:
1 . We are a grass roots organization. We have a dedicated Board of Directors with a vast array of skills who all support our mission with their time and money. We have no paid staff. Every penny you donate goes right back out into communities all over the United States to help kindness grow.
2. We are small, and young, but mighty! In 2018 we started our Kid Kindness Grant program. That year we gave out $2,250 to 12 grant recipients in 3 States and 2 Countries. In 2019 we have more than tripled the amount we are giving! This year $7,725 will fund 31 grants in 6 States! We are helping kindness to grow from coast to coast in the United States and in Canada! In just over 2 years, through our three primary programs (school assemblies, public events, and Kid Kindness Grants) we have directly impacted 10,900 children and parents!
3. New research shows us that kindness not only makes us feel good, but it affects our health in truly tremendous ways. Kindness is helping people to live longer, happier, and healthier lives. Kindness Grows Here’s priority is children. If we can teach children the art of being kind, we will be helping them to live better lives. Your donation will make this possible.
4. Our communities need more kindness! In a world where incidents of hate and bias are on the rise, we need to inspire children to realize that kindness is a super power and that one aspect of being kind is standing up respectfully when people are unkind. Our school assemblies and free public events seek to help kids think about how they can be kind in all aspects of their lives: at home, in school, and in their communities. Our Kid Kindness Grants are empowering kids to change the world one kind act at a time. You can help us to continue doing this with your donation!
