The Great Kindness Challenge 2023


[media-credit name=”Lisa Fotios” align=”alignleft” width=”200″][/media-credit]

Jan. 23 is the kickoff of The Great Kindness Challenge! Started in 2011 by a local community from Carlsbad, California, the Great Kindness Challenge encourages students to spread joy throughout their schools and communities.

According to the official website, the heart of the foundation is the belief that kindness is strength. The weeklong challenge encourages students to do simple acts of service for people, promoting more harmonious environments.

Each day, students and teachers alike come in contact with many different people they can encourage. Just a few of the most common relationships teens encounter every day include:

  • Student-Teacher/Staff
  • Student-Peers
  • Student-Parents/Siblings

Throughout the week of the challenge, (Jan. 23- 27), if you post an act of kindness, don’t forget to use the hashtag #GrowKindness or #TheGreatKindnessChallenge.

Here’s a list of ideas to participate in the challenge

  • Hold the door open for someone

  • Compliment someone

  • Buy pizza for someone on Friday, or a muffin on Thursday

  • Start a conversation with someone who is sitting by themselves

  • Smile at someone in the hallway

  • Be patient with people

  • Genuinely listen

  • Offer a helping hand

  • Leave an encouraging note
