Aw, I have something LOVELY for you today – let me tell you how your child can win a kindness medal.
I won a kindness trophy once when I was a girl guide and it meant the world to me.
Kids love a medal and a kindness medal would so be inspiring, wouldn’t it and encourage even further kindness.
Giving back with kindness
Dulux has partnered with The Great British Children’s Challenge this October to encourage kids to give back to their local communities, by rewarding their efforts with a medal.
The #TrueColours Kindness Challenge seeks to inspire youngsters to help those less fortunate than themselves to carry out selfless acts throughout half-term and beyond.
In celebrating kindness and compassion – while following all social distancing regulations – the children qualify for a limited edition #TrueColours medal.
Now more than ever, communities benefit from staying connected, with the holidays providing the perfect opportunity to spread joy and lift the spirits of those facing challenges.
Kindness means everything, doesn’t it.
The #TrueColours initiative was established by Dulux at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Featuring a coalition of organisations across the construction/DIY industry it is committed to showcasing the acts of kindness of ordinary people that have helped their community during these challenging times.
A Dulux spokesperson said: “During these difficult times, acts of kindness are even more important than they have ever been.
“By joining forces with The Great British Children’s Challenge, we aim to encourage children to look out for others.”
The Great British Children’s Challenge inspires kids to be active and helps them to understand the value of helping good causes – through a range of activities, with proud parents sharing their efforts on Instagram.
How to win a kindness medal
Here are a few ideas of kind acts to give your children inspiration:
