Summer of Kindness Challenge

A Month-Long Celebration of Kindness for Children

From August 1st - 31st 2024

Summer 2024 is here and what better way to spend it than by spreading kindness?

We are excited to introduce the Summer of Kindness Challenge, a month-long challenge designed for children in early years to secondary schools to engage in acts of kindness throughout the month of August.

Summer of Kindness is fun

The Summer of Kindness Challenge is a fun and engaging way for children to spread kindness and make a positive impact in their communities.

The challenge consists of 31 different kindness activities, one for each day of the month, that are designed to be age-appropriate and easy to complete.

Each day, participants will be presented with a new kindness challenge. These challenges range from simple acts of kindness such as holding the door for someone or complimenting a friend, to more involved acts such as volunteering at a local charity or planting a tree. By completing these challenges, children will develop empathy, compassion, and a sense of responsibility towards others.

31 Days Kindness Cards

The Summer of Kindness Challenge is a great way to encourage children to engage in positive behaviour, build relationships with others, and become active members of their communities. It promotes the values of kindness, empathy, and compassion, which are essential in creating a more inclusive and harmonious society.

How to Participate

Parents and Guardians

By involving your children in this challenge, you empower them to make a difference and develop important values that will shape their character.
Kindness knows no boundaries, and together, we can create a wave of positive change that reaches far and wide.

As parents and educators, we have a responsibility to instil these values in our children and the Summer of Kindness Challenge provides an excellent opportunity to do so. By participating in this challenge, children will not only be spreading kindness but also developing important social and emotional skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.

We encourage all children to take part in the Summer of Kindness Challenge and make a positive impact in their communities.

Let’s make this summer a summer of kindness!
