Project Kindness was created to honor Landon by shining his light and fostering kindness throughout the community. Kindness was a trait instilled in Landon’s character as a young boy. He had a natural ability to connect with people of all ages through his kindness and compassion for others.

Landon’s Light Foundation has allocated $20,000 to the Project Kindness Program. Teachers are required to complete an online application for their classroom with a description of their kindness idea and the requested budget amount. Classrooms will be allowed to combine their funds to carry out larger scale projects. Applications will be reviewed in the order in which they are received. Teachers will be notified of approval within 30 days of application submission.

Project Kindness applications must be submitted no later than May 1st, 2024. All Project Kindness ideas must be implemented by May 31st, 2024.

Landon’s Light Foundation is excited to witness the positive impact children will create through this program.

Every act of kindness causes a ripple effect. Spread good ripples today.

Why Kindness Counts

Creating a culture of kindness amongst children helps form social and emotional skills to last a lifetime. Have you ever noticed that helping others makes you feel better too? Random acts of kindness have been proven to release our happy hormone, oxytocin while decreasing our stress hormone, cortisol.

As a result, simple acts of kindness can:
• Reduce anxiety, depression and stress
• Boost the immune system
• Improve self-esteem and mood
• Build an overall sense of purpose
