The world is changing more rapidly than ever before, and it is important to make sure kids and teens are prepared to handle those changes and support each other by being kind and compassionate.
That's why we're excited to kick off the Rules of Kindness Campaign, powered by Hasbro! We're challenging kids and teens to build empathy, be kind, and show they care.
From small gestures, like talking to someone new at school or helping someone pick up their bags when they drop them, to bigger acts like donating food to the homeless or cleaning up a local park, being kind can be as easy and fun!
To help you start the conversation, we partnered with Ashoka to create an empathy toolkit, which provides activities that help teachers build the foundation for empathy and kindness in the classroom as well as activities to do at school at home.
By signing up to create kindness rules and putting them into action through service or simple acts, kids and teens have an opportunity to practice kindness, build a culture of caring, and make a positive mark in their community.

Kindness doesn't cost a dime and you don't need tools to share it with everyone around you (except maybe a smile). It may be the simplest way to brighten someone's day AND improve yours.
