Have you ever wanted to apologize for something you did or said to another girl?
Here's your chance....
WHAT IS KIND CAMPAIGN?
In February 2009, while attending Pepperdine University, two young girls recognized a problem and decided to do something about it. Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson, both affected by female bullying, decided to create a documentary and non-profit that would ultimately change the lives of hundreds of thousands of people across America. The two girls packed their bags and traveled across America in a mini-van with their mothers to interview hundreds of females around the country. The journey is packed with hysterical moments as the four girls attempt to conquer the road and everything America has to offer. While there are plenty of fun moments, their emotional roller-coaster around the country reveals raw and personal stories from girls that will shock you to your core. With the goal of establishing a national school program for girls around the country, Lauren and Molly hope to put an end to the hate and FIND KIND. The girls have gone on three national tours, spreading their school assembly program and documentary film in hundreds of schools and communities across the country.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE
Every single female has encountered an experience in which they become aggressors or victims of girl-against-girl “crime”. Physical fighting, name-calling, threats, power struggles, competition, manipulation, secrets, rumors, and ostracizing other girls all fall under the category of girl-against-girl “crime.”
LET’S BE REAL FOR A SECOND
We all want to be liked. It’s already hard enough to accept ourselves for who we are, let alone accept the perceptions and judgments that other girls have of us. Over the years, the vicious ways in which females treat each other have become societal norms, with various media outlets that mock and even glamorize the issue. What we often choose to ignore is the fact that these experiences very often lead to depression, anxiety, loss of self worth, eating disorders, drug abuse, alcoholism, attempted suicide and actual suicide in millions of girls lives.
IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY
By participating within the interactive facets of this website, joining our social networks, and supporting our documentary, Finding Kind, you are choosing to take a stand.
Look, we know it’s hard to be a girl sometimes. We aren’t asking for everyone to become best friends…that’s simply unrealistic. However, we are suggesting something very simple: to STOP the competition, STOP the cattiness, STOP the hate, and to BE KIND.
Kind Campaign is an internationally recognized movement, documentary and school program based upon the powerful belief in KINDness that brings awareness and healing to the negative and lasting effects of girl-against-girl “crime.”
Say a few Kind Words to someone you think needs to hear it. You'll be amazed at how it will change them.
