OUR

MISSION

HISTORY

After struggling with intense bullying in school and online, Abbey Perl, Founder of the Kind Mind Collective, left high school in hopes of finding solace. She realized that education around bullying and other serious topics were not relatable. She decided to turn her struggles into something that can help others. In 2016, Perl founded the Kind Mind Collective to change the way we talk about social issues.

 

The Kind Mind Collective is dedicated to the development of kindness, compassion, and empathy to supplement and support K-12 educational institutions. We are dedicated to creating a kind and accepting world using programs, materials, and events, and workshops that teach human connection.

What We Do

We believe in combating social issues by incorporating today’s interests, ideologies, and activities into promoting kindness, compassion, and empathy.

How We Do It

We consider the interests of today’s youth when integrating modern concepts into our programming to educate communities on today’s top issues.

Why We Do It

We believe combating hard, complex issues with a contemporary twist is the first step to a kinder, braver world.

FACTS

Kindness can be taught. A researcher from the University of Wisconsin says, “It’s kind of like weight training. We found that people can actually build up their compassion ‘muscle’ and respond to others’ suffering with care and a desire to help.” (Source)

Acts of kindness have a positive three-way effect: There’s the positive effect on the recipient, and the positive effect on you—you might find yourself experiencing the positive emotion of the ‘helper’s high.’ But perhaps the biggest effect of all will be on a passer-by who just happens to witness the act.

"People who engage in kind acts become happier over time…When you are kind to others, you feel good as a person -- more moral, optimistic, and positive." —Sonja Lyubomirsky, Professor of Psychology, UC Riverside.
