At World-Changing Kids (WCK), we are dedicated to building a community of friends where we can create, inspire, teach, learn and support one another. A community where we all feel loved, included and safe. Where we believe the good things we do really can effect change on a larger scale.

Plant a Garden of Kindness
A Child’s Guide to Filling a Year with Weekly Acts of Kindness

This book consists of 75 acts of kindness that children can do to make their community a friendlier place. It is our hope that the reader will select 52 acts of kindness and complete one a week for a whole year. After a year’s worth of acts of kindness, a friendlier community will have been created.
This book will help children build empathy and will show them that by completing acts of kindness for others, they will make themselves feel happier. It will allow children to build deep connections with other families in the neighbourhood, which will result in an increased sense of security and self-confidence for everyone. With this book, the reader will be able to create a community where everyone feels included and everyone takes care of one another.
