  • Announcing February's KIND WORDS Challenge

    February 17th is International Day of Random Acts of Kindness and the world certainly seems to need plenty of those right now. We want to encourage our kids to show love, kindness and respect to all and the Kindness Elves have a lovely idea for encouraging this in the coming month, using JUST our words! The challenge will be to use our written and spoken words to focus on building each other up, letting people know how much we value them and how grateful we are. There's a magical power in words!
