Dignity Health is partnering with Kids for Peace to sponsor The Great Kindness Challenge, an anti-bullying initiative dedicated to creating a culture of kindness in elementary, middle, and high schools nationwide. Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital representative, Brandy Kolmer, says during the week of Jan. 27-31, students at participating schools will be provided a checklist of 50 kind deeds to achieve and are empowered to create positive change.

In three years the Great Kindness Challenge has grown from three schools to more than five hundred schools all over the world. So far this year,  Magnolia School in the Pleasant Ridge School District is committing to participate in the challenge. More schools can register this week.

Both Dignity Health and Kids for Peace believe that humankindness fosters healthier, happier lives and a more peaceful society, and that even a single act of kindness can change the world for the better.

Schools can register online for The Great Kindness Challenge at greatkindnesschallenge.org.
