Pennies of Time provides programming and support for families to take the steps to build kindness habits that will last a lifetime.
In the past, we’ve provided several programs, such as:
- The Family Kindness Adventure Program: An eight week, kindness filled adventure, guided by Sheila.
- One-on-One Mentoring with Parents
- Consulting engagements helping nonprofits become more kid- and family-friendly and allowing kids to volunteer (That is so needed!)
- Large and small group presentations and targeted trainings.
- Virtual events like the Virtual Kindness Summer Camps and Kindness Celebrations provided through The Kindness Academy
- Local kindness events such as Family Service Days, Kindness Carnivals, and Act of Kindness Booths at family events that include our Wheel of Kindness!
We now have data (along with great stories) that we were able to capture on what happens to families while participating in our programs.
Data shows that families that complete programs provided by Pennies of Time:
- Say that they fight less after completing the program compared to how much they fought before working with us.
- Report that their levels of happiness are higher at the end of the program than they scored at the beginning.
- Express greater confidence in knowing how to teach their kids to be kind. They have a greater knowledge base and the tools needed to make acts of kindness fun and meaningful.
- Establish long-term ties to local community service opportunities, seen through building lasting relationships to nonprofits in their area.
All donations are appreciated and will be put to the use of teaching kids to serve, sharing the message of the power in being kind, and spreading more kindness across the world. Donations go towards funding kindness events, parent trainings, presentations, service projects, and acts of kindness all designed to help families integrate kindness into busy schedules and raise compassionate problem solvers
