Corporate Kindness Challenge

Kindess Challenge

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. This program is all about recognizing upstanding companies for their commitment to kindness.  And after a difficult 2020, our world needs a re-emphasis on kindness!

Together – with our families, schools, businesses and nonprofit partners – we will bring our community together and propel the kindness movement forward.
