6 Degrees of Kindness Passport: a project based on the theories that kindness starts with one single person and there is only six degrees of separation between anyone in the world

iCrowdNewswire - Aug 28, 2015

6 Degrees of Kindness Passport

The story of the project

My name is Suzie Herrington and I am proud of many things in my life, but nothing more so than being a mother. It has made me very passionate about creating a community that I want my children and others to be part of – a community built on the foundation of kindness.

With your help, I want to teach as many children as possible the power of kindness, and show them just how far just one good deed can travel and how it can impact on so many people’s lives.

I have spent the last year working on an idea that draws on my skills as a graphic designer and aims right to the heart of the future – our children.

6 Degrees of Kindness is a project based on the theories that kindness starts with one single person and there is only six degrees of separation between anyone in the world.

As Primary school is the most impressionable age for children, it is the perfect age to show them that even in today’s world with so much attention given to academic and sporting achievements that kindness is important too. Not only showing them how their actions – both big and small – can make a difference to the lives of others, but also how rewarding being kind can be for them too.

Research has proven that kindness can help children develop a sense of pride, raise their self-esteem, increase general happiness and better their friendship skills.


The 6 Degrees of Kindness Kit contains a 12 page passport, instructions, 8 page activity booklet, stickers, ambassador card with unique passport codes and plastic pocket and works in conjunction with a custom built website that tracks the journey of each individual passport through every point of contact.

The child decorates their passport and chooses one act of kindness they can do for someone – anyone. The new owner is then encouraged to pay it forward with another act of kindness and continue to pass it on. Simple instructions guide each recipient to go online and record their experience.

Online our little Kindness Ambassadors get to see exactly how far their act of kindness has traveled, whether it’s across cities, across countries, or even continents! The passport once activated will stay live on the website for a minimum of one year.

We will be delivering all orders by the first week in November to coincide with World Kindness Day on November 13th… and of course in plenty of time for Christmas if you are buying them as gifts.

I would love this project to be in every Primary School across Australia and with your help in getting 6 Degrees of Kindness up and running then this is the direction I will be focusing on in the future.

Please take a look at our rewards on offer, every pledge takes us one step closer to creating a kinder community.

How the funds will be used

The $15,000 target is based on external set-up and production costs only and does not include profit or any payment to me for my time in the development of the concept, design of elements and liaison with suppliers.
$6000 website;
$5500 printing, packing and postage;
$3500 Campaign video, fees, advertising

Some of my other work

I have over 25 years experience in the advertising industry working as a studio manager and graphic designer for a leading Melbourne agency. For the past 4 years I have built up a successful freelance business working with various retail, corporate and local businesses. I will be working with Ryan Stock, an innovative and experienced website developer to bring this project together.

Challenges

As a number of external suppliers are being used in the production of different items in the kit there is always a chance of one causing delivery delays but I pride myself on my project management skills and will be monitoring closely at all stages to ensure the promised delivery date is met.
