The purpose of bekindkansas is to look beyond ourselves, the boundaries of our Kansas communities, and realize that kindness is the common thread that unites us all. We inspire Kansans to recognize the potential they have to make positive changes in our Kansas communities. It doesn’t matter where you live, work, or go to school. We can all work together to make Kansas a great place to live.
So here's the deal. School aged kids are in school 9 months a year for 13 years. That's a total of 117 of 156 months from kindergarten through 12th grade. I guess you can say going to school is pretty big deal!!!! It's one of the main ways kids gain the academic, social, and emotional skills needed for adult life. The trouble.....anticipating a new grade, a new classroom, a new teacher, making friends, facing bullies, feeling “uncool” or coping with academic pressures can fuel anxiety, even dread. This anxiety may be experienced through symptoms such as headaches, stomachaches, sleep difficulties, and even school refusal. With an estimated 28% of American kids demonstrating some sort of school refusal behaviors, we took action and created The School Refusal Program ;) Take a look.
We're all about recognizing the Good in people. Regardless of your not so good moments, we still believe you're more Good. By focusing on the Good, we believe our homes, schools, and workplaces will be more kind, accepting, and just plain more fun ;) Join us in recognizing the Good in people. Surprise your child, neighbor, classmate, principal, lawn mowing man, mom, or just about anyone else with a Goodie Gram. There are those moments we all need to be reminded how Good we are. We believe sending a Goodie Gram might just be that simple act that gets someone to smile and recognize the Good in themselves. When you Do Good for others you Get Good in return. Do Good. Get Good.
