Become A Kindness Certified Company!
Kindness Certified Companies (KCC) are good to their people, community, planet and world.
Expanding upon the success of The Great Kindness Challenge, Kids for Peace — in partnership with The Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce — has launched the Kindness Certified program for businesses.
