Kindness at S&S Worldwide

 

Creating an environment that encourages Kindness and sharing it throughout the larger community is important to us. The support our associates show to one another, as well as the larger community, is what inspires the culture at S&S Worldwide.

 

 

 

COMMMUNITY KINDNESS

We know that happiness, positivity, a smile and generosity is contagious - so why not encourage others to participate in spreading it. Whether you are a summer camp, a local park, school organization, assisted living facility, rehabilitation center, after school organization or healthcare facility, the products and ideas we have listed below can help bring a positive vibe into your community.  The item ideas below are meant to be created by your community and displayed purposefully. Your organization can hang finished creations on trees, place in gardens or planters, decorate a common area or lobby, use on bulletin boards, or use as wearable items.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

BUILD A KINDNESS QUILT

 

One of our favorite ideas to encourage a community culture of kindness is to create a quilt. This collaborative project allows individual creativity and self expression, combined with team work.

This inspiring project also lends itself to a wide age group from young children to older adults. With 25 squares in the pack, each individual can create their own message and design, to then tie them all up at the end and proudly display.

Inspirational Messages to Brighten the Day

 

 

Encouraging messages and a reminder to be positive throughout the day can have an impact on your community. We've gathered a few of our favorite suggestions for you that are affordable and easy ways for individuals to express their kindness artistically and share with others to build a positive environment.

 

Write messages and color on our wood pendants or string your fuse bead creations to create a hanging ornament (which won't melt in the sun), then hang them on trees or plants in your community for others to enjoy. Doodle a fun quote on a post-it note and leave them in a lobby, hallway, or common area.  Have a walkway or path? Make it a kindness path and use our sidewalk chalk to deliver inspirational messages.

Wearable Positivity

 

Put a smile on everyone's face that
you cross paths with that day.  
Whether it be an Emoji design, a
word like "SMILE" or a favorite
happy quote; you have the
opportunity to really bring
out the best in someone's day by
carrying your positive messaging with you.

 

 


 

 


 

 

 

Collaborative Kindness Projects  

 

Get creative together as you spread PEACE and kindness with participants in this art project.  Our IMAGINE PEACE Velvet Art Kit
is perfect for a colorful reminder of how participants can create a peaceful and caring environment. 

Give & Receive Compliments

 

It feels just as good to give a compliment as it does to receive one. Which is why these craft sticks are perfect for creating a community compliment jar. Encourage members, students or residents to write compliments on these colorful craft sticks to place in a jar, as
well as take one when they need to brighten their day.

 


 

 

 

INDIVIDUAL ACTS OF KINDNESS

 

Although it may be immeasurable, every small act of kindness has the ability to create a rippling effect. Everyone we meet has their own struggle and their own story, but brightening their day with a piece of art, a smile, a note or gift can go such a long way. Encouraging individuals within your community to support and help others will create a strong, positive environment for everyone.  We have grouped together our favorite items below that individuals can use to add their personalization to and give to a new friend.

 

 

 

 

WATERCOLOR WALL ART

 

With inspirational sayings like Be Awesome, Make Every Day Count, and Believe in Yourself - these resist art watercolor messages have colorful power packed behind their positive vibe. These are perfect to place in a picture frame and hang on the wall to help as a daily reminder to stay positive and have confidence.

Coloring with a Purpose

 

 

Coloring is fun and relaxing, but there is something special behind coloring to give.  Although we have hundreds of items to color and paint in our Velvet Art and Color Me product lines, we love the featured items below. Our Velvet Art To Go allows for Kindness On-the-Go. There are Velvet Art images on one side and an area to write a quote and leave your name on the back.  Both our Good Vibes Craft Kit cards and our Greetings Cards are perfect to help make someone's birthday special, wish them well, congratulate them, celebrate something or just because. Then of course our Color Me Blank Puzzles. We love writing inspiring quotes on these with bold colors so that the puzzle maker can smile when they read the special note we've left them.

CAUGHT BEING KIND

 

What does being kind look like? When working with children and young students, you may need some incentives or rewards to encourage kindness in your classroom or program.  Below are some ideas that you can use to give students that are "Caught Being Kind", or even as a fun giveaway to celebrate a week of Kindness.
