Kids for Peace has been such an uplifting program I have had the pleasure to partake in! It is a culmination of so much hard work, but I can say with conviction that it is a labor of love; and it shows. The passion and dedication the staff have to the cause is nothing short of inspiring and shows a perfect example of the power of human empathy.

Kids for Peace! What better cause is there than peace? And what better way to get there than empowering our children to promote kindness in their daily lives and set the example for others.

Kids for Peace is a beautiful and impactful organization!! My children and I have had the pleasure to participate in several Kids for Peace events and also attended a school chapter where they created beautiful Peace Packs for children in Haiti and organized The Great Kindness Challenge, a free and powerful program for schools to create kindness on their campus. Kids for Peace has created opportunities for my family to find ways to engage in meaningful activities together!

I have been a donor to Kids for Peace for over 10 years. I have watched the organization grow from a local "club" to a global nonprofit with programs in 121 countries and over 10 million children served. I personally know many children who are part of Kids for Peace and I am so impressed by their compassion and leadership skills. Guided by the Peace Pledge, these children are changing the world. No doubt, if everyone followed the Peace Pledge, we really would have a world of peace!
The Peace Pledge
(written by Kids for Peace)
I pledge to use my words to speak in a kind way.
I pledge to help others as I go throughout my day.
I pledge to care for our earth with my healing heart and hands.
I pledge to respect people in each and every land.
I pledge to join together to unite the big and small.
I pledge to do my part to create peace for one and all.

So many positive experiences with Kids for Peace! I have participated in training youth leaders, building a school in Kenya, speaking to school children and their teachers about anti-bullying, ways to be kind, and ways to create peace. I have volunteered at conferences to encourage school personnel to participate in the Great Kindness Challenge, and in 2017, there were more than 10 million children worldwide who participated, each child doing 50 acts of kindness in one week! Good Morning America showcased this Kids for Peace initiative for a whole week in January 2017! I have headed up book drives and collected more than 5000 children's books for distribution to needy children, and helped to build a playground and a school infirmary in a third world country. Kids for Peace is extraordinary!!
