TITLE: Kindness Is a Choice #DareToBeKind

DURATION: 45–60 minutes



A recipient of one amazing act of kindness, Gabriella shares her story: She began her life in a Catholic orphanage in Pakistan and without the determination and kindness of two strangers she would not have made it to her new family in the Netherlands.


Students gain a deep understanding of the importance kindness plays in creating a community where they feel safe and accepted by others. They leave inspired knowing that they have the might to change someone’s life through a single act of kindness.


Gabriella asks the question: “As a society, we have dropped the ball on Human Kindness®. Will you help me pick it up? One moment, one person, one kindness—is all it takes to help another go from a negative space to a positive place. BE the difference!”
