The Cool 2Be Kind campaign is an initiative of the Winnipeg Police Association and focuses on teaching youth in grades K-8 the value of being kind.
Entering our fifth year, this positive behavior, anti-bullying initiative outlines the benefits of being kind to others and making good choices in school and in life. Students and staff are invited to create and submit a unique kindness proposal for their school with the opportunity to receive funding in the amount of $500 to see their program come to life. Off-duty police officers visit schools and community organizations throughout Winnipeg and deliver fun and interactive presentations.
Over the past four years, the Cool 2Be Kind campaign has funded 83 kindness proposals totalling over $40,000. We have spoken to over 20,000 students and educators. The response has exceeded our expectations. To register your Cool 2Be Kind school project, and be eligible to receive a $500 school grant, simply click here and fill out the online form.
