Below is information from Youth Service America (YSA) about their new Kindness Rising campaign they are launching with Hasbro, Inc. in honor of National Bullying Prevention Month.

Get involved

Visit http://LeadASAP.YSA.org/ and follow these three simple steps to help Kindness Rise:

  1.     Take the pledge to BE FEARLESS BE KIND
  2.     Pick a project or kind act to do in your community! (Use our tools and resources to help you plan)
  3.     Show your impact at http://LeadASAP.YSA.org/ for the chance to win one of ten $250 grants! 

The Kindness Rising campaign is powered by YSA’s #LeadASAP initiative and is sponsored by Hasbro’s BE FEARLESS BE KIND.

About the Kindness Rising Campaign

How does it work?

From October 2 through December 20, educators, youth program leaders, caring adults, and youth are encouraged to visit http://YSA.org/KindnessRising where they can take the the BE FEARLESS BE KIND pledge, put that pledge into action through service projects and kind acts, and show the impact of their work for the chance to win grants. 

For everyone who takes the BE FEARLESS BE KIND pledge, Hasbro will donate a toy or game to Toys for Tots, up to 250,000, for children in need this holiday season. Plus, participants who complete a service project or kind act and show their impact at http://YSA.org/KindnessRising will be entered to win grants. Ten prize winners will receive a $250 grant.


Who can participate?

Youth ages 13-18 can participate on their own or with a group of peers. Educators, youth development professionals and parents can sign-up on behalf of youth, their class, or groups of youth of any age.

Why should youth participate?

Kindness is rising. We can see examples of it every day in ways big and small, from the student who chooses to sit with the new kid at lunch, to groups of youth fundraising for the victims of Hurricane Irma. Through service projects or kind acts, young people can learn powerful life skills and be the catalysts to keep Kindness Rising!


What will youth learn? 


Through service with YSA, youth develop the skills necessary to succeed in school, work and life –– skills like empathy, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication. They will come away with an appreciation for difference, an awareness of how their work fits into the UN’s 17 Global Goals, and the knowledge that they can make a real difference in their community.
