Because of You

In an effort to combat both online and offline bullying, the Ad Council has released ‘Because of You,’ a new Bullying Prevention message aimed at heightening self-awareness and reflection among teens. The new work encourages teens to consider the impact of their actions to create a more empathetic, inclusive culture.

Kindness to Self

Self Care is an important topic to kick off any discussion about kind action. By caring for ourselves kindly we create the right conditions to effectively project kindness outwards.
