Our powerful display of children who have died by suicide due to bullying speaks loud and clear as it demonstrates the serious problem of bullying. we bring these vigils at our events to raise awareness. we can also bring a small number of them to our school presentations for high school, college, parents and educators or upon request. Every story is a shocking reminder that bullying can happen to anyone and that no one is safe for as long as it continues.  

K-3RD GRADES with "Once Upon a Season" Puppet Show

Children in Kindergarten through 3rd grade obtain a clear education on acceptable and non-acceptable behaviors, identifying and understanding 6 types of bullying, having compassion and understanding towards children with different abilities (using puppets and slides) and different races as they learn about non- judgment, forgiveness, kindness and friendship. Our puppet show demonstrates stories that are memorable and engaging as it identifies 6 types of bullying and offers solutions.



4TH & 5TH GRADES with "Once Upon a Season Puppet Show

Children in 4th & 5th grade obtain a more in-depth training on 6 types of bullying specially cyber bullying, practicing the “6 Pillars” of character, accepting diversity, respecting peers with different abilities and learning practical peaceful solutions to work out differences, specifically for the bully, the bullied, and the bystanders. Puppets and 
marionette further engage children as we offer solutions with our unique talents of story-telling. Videos show visual and scientific impact of kindness within our circles and beyond.



MIDDLE SCHOOL with "Once Upon a Season" Marionettes

Middle school kids are more seriously subjected to cyber bullying besides struggling with peer pressure. This group’s presentation also includes a more in-depth education on how to protect against cyber bullies and the right course of action when it happens. Encouraging those who get bullied to be strong and secure with who they are, those who bully others to be more respectful, kind and compassionate towards all and the bystanders to invite diversity into their groups so no student is left alone without a friend. 



HIGH SCHOOL and COLLEGE 

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among young adults between 15-24 years of age. This group is also presented with criminal bullying, the short term legal consequences as well as long term effects of bullying on bullies and their victims as they are stepping into adulthood, how their choices of what they let into their body and mind as well as their friendships now can affect the rest of their lives, while encouraging them to say no to drugs and violence, learn to love and believe in themselves, use their abilities to become our next generation of leaders and peacemakers, come together as one and embrace diversity into their circle of friends to build a stronger and healthier future for themselves and others. 



PARENTS

Our children do what we do not what we tell them to do! This presentation provides insights into how parents can be who they want their children to become, accentuate the positive in their child, stay connected and always leave the line of communication open as they help raise a generation that values peaceful negotiations, respecting all and accepting diversity and differences. Parents also learn about the proper response and course of action to take when their child bullies or is bullied at school or online.

Start your own "kind and safe schools club" at your school​


After our presentations if a school is interested, we appoint Youth Ambassadors within your school and will guide them every month through out the school year to set up their own Kindness Initiatives at school. We prefer appointing a different Youth Ambassador every month to rally up their friends, engage more students and come up with fresh ideas. Youth Ambassadors will need to document their projects with pictures and videos and we will post them on social media. Every Youth Ambassador will receive a Kindness Card from us at the completion of every project. At the end of the year, students will vote to determine which Kindness activity was their favorite and that way we can determine the "King and Queen of Kindness". "The King and Queen of Kindness" will both receive a special Kindness Plaque from us.
