Join Inspire Central for the Great Kindness Challenge
Why? Kindness is proven to create happiness, improve self-esteem, boost health, build relationships and best of all its CONTAGIOUS!
About: The Great Kindness Challenge is a positive and uplifting program that creates a culture of kindness in schools, communities, and the world. Using a 50 item checklist, schools and families are challenged to complete as many acts of kindness as possible.
How? It’s easy! Families sign up online, download, and print the kindness checklist or use an interactive Great Kindness Challenge app. Guided by the kindness checklist, families have fun and show the world that KINDNESS MATTERS!
***Please take pictures and videos of your family checking things off the list and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org***

Kids love crafting! We want to help your child be as creative as possible without the hassle or mess for you! We know how hard it is for busy parents to plan, prep, create and clean up a craft...
Instead, bring your kiddos to our classes and we've got you covered! Your child will have a great time crafting with us, and you'll end up with some adorable decorations for your home!

We are excited to invite you to join Inspire as we show foster kids some love, just in time for Valentine's Day. We are planning to make, fill, and decorate "Journey Bags" to a local foster care agency. These bags, which are simple to sew and fill, will be given to foster kids to keep as their very own.
You can participate by sewing bags, donating items to fill the bags, or coming to the packing party.
Sewing Directions are here.
