October is National Bullying Awareness Month. There’s a lot that happens in our schools and our society that could benefit from a little kindness. Bullying awareness is crucial and important – we need to talk to our kids about how to handle situations, we need to intervene, we need to stand up for what is right. The goal of the Kindness in Chalk Movement is to combat bullying with the most valuable virtue of all – the virtue that comes in the form of a hug, a compliment, or a silent smile to a stranger – the virtue we must teach day in and day out – KINDNESS.
BE KIND. TEACH KINDNESS. This is our job. Help us spread kindness by writing words of encouragement on the sidewalks of our schools and communities on Kindness in Chalk Day.
