Join the Detroit Public Schools Community District (DPSCD) and pledge to #BeKind21. From September 1st to 21st talk with your kids about how to practice kindness toward themselves and others! Together we can help build kinder, more connected communities that foster mental wellness.

The #BeKind21 Campaign is the Born This Way Foundation’s largest annual campaign and is a movement that calls on the public to practice an intentional act of kindness each day from September 1 to September 21. DPSCD is committed to supporting and cultivating a culture of kindness to build more connected school communities throughout the year. Students and their families from Detroit and the surrounding area can share their experiences and/or recommendations by video on how you will inspire those around you through kindness. Use this link to submit videos.

5 Ways To Be Kind:

  • Bake cookies and deliver them to your neighbors
  • Make care packages for the homeless
  • Clean up a local park or public space
  • Write cards to seniors at local care facilities
  • Bring your teacher a breakfast treat
