Hello Humankindness Friends is a positivity-based program that approaches anti-bullying messages from a pro-kindness angle. Each month features original animations, with accompanying lesson plans and classroom activities for lower and higher age groups. This material is made in conjunction with local students between Kindergarten and 8th grade, and even features their voices in the monthly animated shorts.
This kindness program began as a student-based community project through the Jim Burke Ford Education Foundation. Local students partook in character design, music composition, and curricula creation. Dignity Health Mercy and Memorial Hospitals have sponsored the creation of each month's kindness content, enthusiastic about the kindness synergy the two missions share.
