How do you bring kindness into the world when you see such big problems? This was the question that inspired two people with a simple idea to make the world a better place and in the process ended up creating a worldwide organization for peace. In 2006, Jill McManigal, a mother of two young children and Danielle Gram, a high school honors student met at a neighborhood party in Carlsbad, California, and Kids for Peace was born.
During the pandemic, Kids For Peace brought children together at an elementary school in California and asked themselves how they could help kids stay connected during the period of social isolation. Rather than giving in to sadness and apathy, these children decided to reach out to others to make the world’s largest paper chain—a chain of kindness with sayings of hope, love and peace to inspire others all over the world. What began as a small effort by a few students quickly morphed into hundreds of schools making chains that became an 18-mile-long source of hope. We can all make a difference, but in order to see a problem and find a solution we need to be in our conscious mind.
With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE because they are also wonderful way to activate your conscious mind, and find innovative solutions for the problems that challenge all of us.
