Great Kindness Challenge


We challenge you to perform as many kind deeds as you can in one week. Using the Dignity Health Kindness list, check off your acts of kindness as you go. Have fun!

Dignity Health Northridge Hospital has long believed that kindness is a healing force. One of the many ways we express this belief is our annual partnership with Kids for Peace for The Great Kindness Challenge. 

Recently Lloyd Dean, CEO, Dignity Health, met with some remarkable children at the Mission Dolores Academy in San Francisco. It was a reminder of how, in so many ways, they are the ones with something to teach all of us. The kids I spoke with proved that beyond a doubt. Take a look at this video and you'll see what I mean.

This global program aims to inspire students to make a lifelong commitment to service and kindness, by challenging students in elementary, middle, and high schools worldwide to complete 50 kind deeds in one week. Every January, students nationwide are provided with a checklist of 50 kind deeds to perform. 

We challenge you to perform as many kind deeds as you can everyday in your life. Using this checklist, check off your acts of kindness as you go, and come up with your own ideas.

Have fun and jand your acts of kindness with us on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #DignityHealthGKC and #hellohumankindness.

Outreach to Our Local Schools

Seventeen schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District participated in the Great Kindness Challenge in January. Nearly 13,000 children in our community spread kindness messages and acts of kindness. The events are created in partnership with the schools working with our Healthier Communities School Wellness staff. Dignity Health Northridge Hospital thanks Canoga Park Elementary School, and the Los Angeles Unified School District, for joining the Great Kindness Challenge.
