Since the Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation began 15 years ago, we have been inviting people to say “Peace is Possible”. To celebrate our 15th anniversary, we we are inviting people to participate in a “Kindness Campaign.”

We are encouraging people of all ages and in all spaces of the world to do acts of kindness and to share kind thoughts with others, and to post examples of these acts and words on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, websites, and more.


“Kindness is an antidote for bullying.” – Mattie J.T. Stepanek

We do not need to agree with each other to be kind to each other.

Kindness is an essential part of peace, and peace is possible.

There are many ways to participate in this Kindness Campaign.

Perform one act of kindness or share a kind thought each day.

Be the source of kindness in your home or work or community. Share this act or thought on your Facebook page, Twitter feed, Instagram, or blog. Your kindness expressions may inspire others to perform acts of kindness as well!

Look for kindness in our world. It’s there!

News stories are often about tragic events, and acts of kindness are not usually in the headlines. But our world is filled with good people, doing and saying good things. Look for this goodness and kindness. Take a photo, write a thought, or draw a picture about what you are seeing that is kind. Share that with us for the Kindness Campaign album, and post it to your social media pages. Help us #MakePeaceTheNews!

Participate in the Mattie J.T. Stepanek Foundation’s 15th anniversary drive.

Help us continue creating peace programs and activities for youth and adults who are looking for ways to learn about and celebrate peace. Donate $15 or more in honor of our work.

Kindness becomes a habit! By performing daily acts of kindness or saying kind words each day, peace becomes part of our “To Be List” and not just something on our “To Do List.”

Our world becomes a kinder, gentler place, and YOU are a part of that shift!
