World Kindness Day: Be a Kindness Superhero!
Kindness Superheroes have one mission: to spread kindness all over the world to help boost the mental wellness of others! They show their compassion through words and actions and inspire others to do the same. Anyone can be a Kindness Superhero. In fact, look in the mirror and you’ll see one!
Being a Kindness Superhero is easier than you think. We have 5 ways to help you get started in time for World Kindness Day on November 13.
1. Take the On Our Sleeves Kindness Challenge
The On Our Sleeves Kindness Challenge gives you easy tips on how you can use kindness to make a difference in boosting the mental wellness of others - and it's good for you too!
Studies show that practicing kindness is beneficial for our own mental health and wellbeing too. It can:
- Help reduce stress
- Increase your sense of happiness
- Reduce negative emotions
- Help you feel more connected to others
- Reinforce important social skills that support healthy development
2. Buy a Superhero Shirt
Kindness Superheroes need a superhero uniform. Luckily our friends at HOMAGE are helping us spread the word with their "Kindness is My Superpower" t-shirt. We are grateful that HOMAGE is donating 100% of net proceeds to On Our Sleeves so we can continue to provide free educational resources to every community in America.
3. Gift Kindness to a Classroom
Deliver kindness to classrooms across America. For $13, you can help our mission and give the gift of kindness in the form of a $13 donation. For every donation received, we will send a limited edition Kindness Kit to a classroom in the United States.
The kit includes:
- Superhero Kindness Curriculum
- Classroom poster
- 30 On Our Sleeves pencils
- 30 Kindness Cards
Kindness Kits will be mailed in January.
Meet the Superheroes of Kindness!
On Our Sleeves has teamed up with two amazing superheroes, Star Wars Actress Ashley Eckstein and Drag Queen Nina West, to change the world: one act of kindness at a time! Anyone can be a Superhero of Kindness, and Ashley and Nina are asking people of all ages to join them on this important mission. Every superhero needs a costume, so Ashley and Nina worked with HOMAGE to design the limited edition superhero T-shirt to get the word out. Thanks, Ashley and Nina, for your support!
Ashley is a widely recognized actress, entrepreneur, author and fandom icon. She is most known as the voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars and founder of the fashion and lifestyle fandom brand, Her Universe.
A Columbus, Ohio, treasure, Nina West, also known as Andrew Levitt, has traveled the world with The “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” Nina is starring as Edna Turnblad in the national tour of “Hairspray,” opening November 17.
