“I was at the Kind Campaign assembly at Draper Park. You guys really changed my point of view on everything. Every girl friend I’ve had, I have lost. This morning when I woke up I was thinking about committing suicide. I came to school today on the verge of tears. I came up and shared my Kind Card. Once I got home I realized that even though some girls can be mean and don’t understand what their words can do that it shouldn’t be worth dying over. Your assembly today? Yeah, it saved my life.”

The filmmakers and Kind Campaign founders, Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson, have traveled across North America since 2009, speaking in hundreds of schools and communities. As a result of their fundraising efforts, all Kind Campaign Founders Assemblies are free of charge for schools. Lauren and Molly go on two school assembly tours a year; one in the Fall during October’s anti- bullying month and one throughout the Spring, totaling at about 70-80 Founders Assemblies a year. If you are interested in applying for a Founders Assembly, please follow Kind Campaign on Instagram, Facebook and/or Twitter at @KINDCAMPAIGN. If you don’t have social media, email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: Founders Assembly Mailing List and you will be contacted when the submission windows are open. You will be informed via their social media platforms when the application period to apply for a Founders Assembly is open. After filling out an inquiry form, your school will then be entered into the pool of schools that have applied. Lauren and Molly then analyze the locations of all the applicants and put together a tour that allows them speak in as many schools as possible. Because there are hundreds of applicants for this high- demand program and because Lauren and Molly can only speak in so many schools a year, there is no guarantee that your school will be chosen for the free Founders Assembly. Therefore, booking your own Kind Campaign Assembly is a great option. Please click the next tab to read how you can book your own assembly right now.
