Meet Nicole. She is a bright and vivacious girl with a smile that lights up the world. Nicole and her family are among the thousands of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers from Mexico and Central America who have settled in Tijuana. Living in a town that borders the USA and with drug-related violence prevalent in her neighborhood, Nicole wishes for safety and unity. To make that wish come true, we will build a much needed pre-primary school and friendship center in Nicole’s neighborhood. The friendship center will be a safe place where children on both sides of the border can gather to learn, build bridges and make new friends.
We invite you to watch this beautiful video with your students and hope you will join the 2020 Kind Coins for Mexico Campaign!
P.S. The age appropriate video watching guides are available on the GKC Tools page.
“The Great Kindness Challenge provided an opportunity for our students to care for each other in ways that went above and beyond their normal interactions. As a result, we noticed a real impact on the school’s culture with a decrease in bullying and an increase in compassion, unity and respect.”
Chad Lund, Elementary Principal of GKC Pilot School, Carlsbad, California
"I encourage everyone to participate in the Great Kindness Challenge. This national program is a terrific way to promote kindness at California’s public schools. The challenge also matched perfectly with the California Department of Education’s (CDE) ongoing efforts to meet the social and emotional needs of the whole child."
Tom Torlakson, California State Superintendent of Public Instruction
“I am looking forward to the Great Kindness Challenge. It was the best week of the whole year for student behavior. It also lasted the rest of the school year!”
“Not only were there more smiles on campus, there were also zero behavioral referrals to my office during The Great Kindness Challenge week. I believe in all my years as an administrator that has never before happened. True success!”
Rita Powell, Elementary Principal, San Diego, California
“After this week ends, I want to keep being kind.”
Michaela, Fourth Grade Student, Carlsbad, California
“Every school in America should participate in The Great Kindness Challenge. It not only helps to elevate the school climate, it’s a highly effective tool in engaging all students, staff and community members. So simple, so powerful.”
Garry Grotke, 2013 California Elementary Principal of the Year, San Leandro, California
“Thank you! We did this last year and it really unified our school.”
