EMPOWERING TODAY’S YOUTH TO CHANGE THE WORLD
Danny Keith, Founder of Grind out Hunger, and Justina Bryant, Founder of 21 Day Kindness Challenge Program, are partnering up to empower children to the take actions they need to change the world around them.
On July 1, 2014, Grind Out Hunger entered into a fiscal partner agreement with Justina Bryant for the 21 Day Kindness Challenge Program. “When Justina Bryant told me about the program and the impact it was making on school campuses – I knew Grind Out Hunger needed to be a part of it in some way,” said Danny Keith.
Justina Bryant founded the 21 Day Kindness Challenge program in March of 2014. Mrs. Bryant developed the program as part of a kindness project for her afterschool kindness club that she implemented on the Rio del Mar Elementary campus in Aptos. After the 21 Day Kindness Challenge received attention from the press, teachers from schools nationwide have asked Mrs. Bryant to bring the challenge to their campuses.
“I am very grateful to Grind Out Hunger for taking on this program. The fiscal partnership agreement will allow me to raise the funding I need to get the program to additional schools,” said Mrs. Bryant. Mrs. Bryant is planning on rolling out a K-12 nation-wide pilot program in the Fall of 2014. “I believe today’s youth can change the world. As Margaret Mead once said, Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has,” remarked Mrs. Bryant.
