The mission of The Random Acts of Kindness Foundation is to make kindness the norm™ in our schools, workplaces, homes & communities. We work toward that goal by creating free content that promotes kindness toward others & teaches important social emotional learning skills to kids.
While academics are important during this time of distancing, we believe social emotional skills are incredibly valuable to our mental health.
For those of you looking to include social emotional learning into your daily/weekly curriculum, we've added some mini-lessons that can be done at home alone or with others in your household. Most importantly, take care of yourself and your own well-being. It's not easy to learn if you aren't practicing self care!
Also check out our distance learning tips for schools and parents and other free school resources below.

There are SO many individuals sacrificing their own health and time with family to keep the rest of safe and secure during these unprecedented times. Medical professionals, grocery store employees, warehouse workers, truck drivers, etc. A little note of kindness can go so far! Let's make sure to uplift those who are keeping us going while the rest of the world is shut down.
