    MISSION STATEMENT

    KIND CAMPAIGN IS AN INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION THAT BRINGS AWARENESS AND HEALING TO THE NEGATIVE AND LASTING EFFECTS OF GIRL-AGAINST-GIRL BULLYING THROUGH THEIR GLOBAL MOVEMENT, DOCUMENTARY FILM, IN-SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES AND EDUCATIONAL CURRICULUMS.

    WHAT IS KIND CAMPAIGN?


    In February 2009, while attending Pepperdine University, Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson joined forces. Having both been affected by female bullying throughout their youth, the young women decided to create change by giving females a platform to speak out about this universal experience. What began as an idea for a documentary about girl-against-girl bullying, ultimately became Kind Campaign, a multi-platform movement that has transformed hundreds of thousands of lives, friendships, classrooms and communities around the world.

    Upon graduating with degrees in Film and Television production, Lauren and Molly drove across the country for two months to shoot their documentary and began to implement their assembly program into schools across the nation. Girls across the country were deeply impacted and word spread quickly about their life-changing assembly program. After a year of working on their documentary and spreading their movement, they were ready to bring their nished lm into schools and venues across the world. Their documentary, Finding Kind, was released in theaters in New York and Los Angeles, was accepted and awarded in over 20 lm festivals and has screened in thousands of schools across the world. Finding Kind is at the heart of the Kind Campaign Assembly, which now takes place in schools almost every day of the school year and serves as a life-changing educational tool for students, faculty and parents across North America.

    Since 2009, Lauren and Molly have held Kind Campaign Founders Assemblies in hundreds of schools across North America and have completed eleven international anti-bullying school tours. Kind Campaign releases new and exciting initiatives each year such as their 19-week Kind Club Curriculum and Kind Camps. With their documentary, assemblies, annual tours, Kind Club Curriculum, Kind Camps and their connected and deeply supportive online community, Kind Campaign serves as the premiere anti-bullying movement for girls and has impacted millions of individuals across the globe.

    The Issue At Hand

    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 in the activities on this site, interacting with our social media platforms and by bringing Kind Campaign Assemblies and Kind Clubs to your local schools and community 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 change your world by BEING KIND.

    Lauren Paul

    Hi! I am so happy that you are here checking out what Kind Campaign is all about! I grew up in Orange County California but came to Los Angeles to attend Pepperdine University where I studied Film/Television production.

    Finding a way to stop girl-against-girl “crime” from happening is something that has been on my heart since I was twelve years old. For me, the hardest time was middle school, when a group of my girl friends turned on me. I can still vividly recall every torturous experience they put me through throughout 7th and 8th grade. I think the most important part of my story is how those experiences affected me as a young girl. I became scared to go to school, my grades started to drop, I was scared to answer the phone, and finding places to hide on campus became a daily routine. Through this time I battled depression and got to the point where I tried to take my own life in seventh grade. I know first hand how much it hurts to be called names, to be threatened and to feel like you are all alone.
