What is a favorite shirt or outfit that makes you feel confident and why?
Think back to a time in your school career where you felt successful. Why did you feel that way and what were the contributing factors that allowed you to feel successful?
The Homeless Youth School Clothes Kit was designed with our partners at Note in the Pocket. The mission of Note in the Pocket is to provide clothing to impoverished and homeless schoolchildren with dignity and love. Note in the Pocket believes that it is unacceptable that children are limited in their educational and social development because they do not have appropriate clothes for school.
Note in the Pocket’s model for getting the clothes to the children strives to remove some of the stigma that goes along with needing help. A child does not need to wear the same pair of pants over and over again or wear clothes that no longer fit. We get much needed clothing to children in two ways. We deliver a wardrobe that has been lovingly selected for that individual by one of our volunteers to the schools and agencies we work with and through Shop For Free events set up in high need neighborhoods. By providing stylish, good quality clothing items that they can be proud to wear, we empower children to succeed in the academic environment.
Please follow the instructions on this card to create your own Kynd Code. This Kynd Code will be included in the final kit.
*Make note of your Kynd Code. You will use this code at the end of the project.
This is for you to spread extra kyndness to someone in your own life. Consider writing a note to a friend, loved one, or colleague that you are grateful for. Address the note and send it in the mail or give it to someone in person.
DO NOT include this in the finished kit.
KyndHub is an online community that gamifies volunteering, acts of kindness, and gratitude.
