HSI has accepted the #BeKindChallenge from Ben’s Bells Project. Now, we are inviting YOU to join in! Anyone can participate in the “Be Kind Challenge” and the paper chain activity can be done anywhere. It is a motivator that helps us practice intentional kindness to those around us and ourselves! Here’s how it works:
Strips of paper for chain links – Paper Slips online or make your own.
Tape or a Stapler *Ideally stapler works best but tape will also work!
Pens, markers, or colored pencils.
1. Download and print the “be kind challenge” chain links HERE so you can track your acts of kindness. Or, make your own by cutting a 5×11” piece of paper into 1”- 2” strips.
2. Place blank chain links in an accessible location along with pens/markers and tape or a stapler.
3. Practice and recognize intentional kindness! This can be something you do for yourself or others. Whether it’s running an errand for a neighbor or showing compassion for yourself when you’re experiencing big emotions, record your acts of kindness throughout the day on the pre-cut strips, looping them together as a chain.
4. At the end of each day, look at how your family’s chain has grown and reflect on the importance of each act of kindness completed. Display your chain for all to see.
