Kind is Cool September Winners

October 2019

We are so excited to share the September winners of our "Kind is Cool" initiative! #pikkindness - a campaign with a mission to promote and celebrate kindness in the classroom and beyond, and to help put a stop to bullying. Here at kidpik, we think that being kind is cool, and we want to reward the kidpik girls who help spread that message. Each month we will be choosing five winners for their random acts of kindness. Read all about the winners acts of kindness below, and submit yours here.

Annika

I had a classmate that was just diagnosed with cancer and they can’t come back to school. I asked my mom to help me put together a kit of things to do like beads and string and paint and canvass, etc. we took it over and I made plans to go over once a week as long as I can. It makes me feel good I can help do the things that made me feel better when I was sick at the age of 5. She was very happy that I done this since no one else has made the time to even call and check on her.

Julia

My daughter, Julia, 7th grade stays during her recess at school and takes her time to help a boy, 5th grader, with math. The boy struggles with math, he tried tutoring with his math teacher, but got too nervous and was too afraid to ask questions. Julia found him crying in a hallway at school after class. After she learned about his story she offered him help. Since then every day they meet quietly at the school library for 20 minutes to work on his math. The boy's grades had improved, his self esteem went up. Julia feels very proud of his results and always encourages him to believe in himself. I feel very proud of Julia for offering help to someone in need on her personal time off and working with the boy for almost a month already!

Evangeline

For my birthday, I asked for gift cards to Target so I can donate toys to the hospital. I wanted kids to be able to enjoy their stay there. I know a lot of them have to stay for a long time because they’re sick and I wanted them to be have things to play with.

Zoey

I was told the other day by my daughter's school office that my daughter, Zoey, is always helpful to a girl at school with Autism. The ladies in the office were proud of Zoey because she helps this girl with her stuff getting off the bus each morning, getting her to class and helping her in the afternoon on their way back to daycare. These ladies said most kids don't acknowledge this girl and they were impressed that not only is Zoey helpful, but truly kind to this girl every day.

Jordan

My 12 year old daughter, Jordan, is a competitive bowler that actively participates in her local youth league. The league is for all experience levels from the very beginners to the advanced which is where Jordan is. She noticed at her first league play that a couple of the younger children really struggling, feeling defeated, and didn’t want to return. Without prompting Jordan offered to play a few games after league. She coached them for 3 hours showing them how to walk, hold the ball, arm movement, and ball release. She did this with a smile and never let on how exhausted she was. The little ones were so thankful and couldn’t wait to return to the league the next week to practice some more. Now, whenever she arrives at league all of the younger kids give her huge hugs and call her Coach Jordan
