Notes of Encouragement
Encouraging Kids to Encourage Others
At Frieda B. we strive to help children internalize the beauty and the inherently good power of encouraging others, of adding empathy and inspiration to the world. Even in the seemingly smallest of ways.
That's the intent behind our Notes of Encouragement Program. We provide blank notecards and envelopes to kids and teens, and guide them through the process of first thinking about how it feels to be encouraged, then creating a note to encourage someone they'll likely never meet.
We collect and distribute these cards to customers, vendors, partners - one person at a time.
One of the greatest blessings in our work is watching someone open a note. You can imagine. Often we're asked by recipients to take a picture to share, as a way of expressing gratitude.
It's little things done with good intention that have power to positively impact others. We have seen that time and time again through this program - on the part of both the creator and recipient.
Which is why we have decided to broaden the impact of these students' notes. We have selected 8 notes and redesigned them into printed notecards for folks like you to purchase and share with even more people. These are available in our online store.
We are greatly encouraged, to encourage.
