Submitted: Bayside Academy

Daphne, Ala., January 27, 2020 – Bayside Academy is participating in The Great Kindness Challenge this week, January 27–31, 2020. The Great Kindness Challenge is a positive, proactive kindness initiative, reaching millions of students and families every year.

According to Bayside’s Intermediate School Counselor Andi Millsap, "This free program teaches so much of value to students of all ages and to adults as well. In addition to random acts of kindness, participants actively seek out purposeful acts of kindness. We hope their efforts have an enduring effect.”

The Great Kindness Challenge is a positive and uplifting program that creates a culture of kindness in schools, communities, and the world. Using a kindness checklist, schools and families are challenged to complete as many acts of kindness as possible. The School Edition is an annual one-week challenge during the last week of January. The Family Edition is year-round, and families may get involved by signing up at no cost as The Great Kindness Challenge is made possible by the generosity of the following sponsors: Toy Foundation, ViaSat, Mind Yeti, Nordson, TaTaTu, McGraw-Hill Education, and Wonder Kindness Certified Kind Classroom Challenge.

Kids of Peace is a California-based global nonprofit that provides a platform for youth to actively engage in socially-conscious leadership, community service, global friendships, and thoughtful acts of kindness. Over 13 million youth in 121 countries actively create a culture of peach through their two programs, The Great Kindness Challenge and The Peace Pledge Program.
