CTKG Elena's Campaign for Kindess

Elena Tipton, the first ever Connecticut’s Kid Governor® of Connecticut, ran on a platform of kindness. She wants to develop opportunities for Connecticut’s kids to share the amazing things that they are doing every day to show kindness.

To achieve her vision, Elena outlined a three-point plan of action that kids across Connecticut can participate in. It includes:

Point 1. Make the 13th day of every month "Kindness Day" and create a blog where students and schools can share the "awesome" acts of kindness that they are doing.

Point 2. Work with kids and adults to bring Christian Bucks' Buddy Benches to school playgrounds in CT – Elena has set a goal for 10 schools in our state to work toward getting Buddy Benches.

Point 3. Listen to the students of CT to find out great things happening at their schools so that we can all recognize and celebrate how awesome kids in CT are.
