  • "My kindergarten students' eyes light up when we receive Kind News in the classroom. They are so excited to turn the pages to learn about animals, engage in fun games, and see real pictures. They love that they are able to take Kind News to share these stories with their families!"

    Kimberly Craig, Shambaugh Elementary, Fort Wayne, IN
  • "My humane society has supported local schools with Kind News for so many years because we truly believe that educating our children is the most effective and proactive approach to fostering kindness towards animals."
