Empowering Kids to Choose Kindness
ThinkGive helps teachers foster caring and inclusive classrooms.
ThinkGive students give—their support, their gratitude, their effort, and so much more. They experience firsthand the impact their positive words and actions have on others and themselves. Students build a strong sense of self, make meaningful connections, and learn to lead with empathy and kindness.

"ThinkGive challenged me to think of others first and what I can do for them. I learned that my actions are powerful."
"ThinkGive taught me to be more aware of people around me and that my presence matters. I learned that even the tiniest gift can make the biggest difference.”
"ThinkGive changed how I think about and treat other people. I learned that being kind to someone in the smallest way can change how they feel the rest of the day."
“ThinkGive made me recognize how I treat others, how they treat me, and how I treat myself.”
"ThinkGive redefined my idea of a gift. Instead of a gift being an object you give somebody, it's an action that will make someone happy."
"Our whole class was affected by ThinkGive. It changed people’s mindsets, which changed our class."
“I now know how far a simple act of kindness can carry a person. I will be nicer to people no matter who they are.”
“I learned to focus on the good things happening around me, rather than the bad.”
“ThinkGive made me feel braver about sticking up for what is right.”
"I learned that you can't change others, but you can change yourself and view people from a different perspective to see the good in yourself and the world.”
“I learned that by giving, I can make new friends, achieve trust from others, and become a better person overall.”
“ThinkGive has and will help me be a more considerate, thoughtful, and compassionate person. Knowing the positive effects I can have on a person is truly amazing.”
