flyhighbillie™ is a registered charity with DGR status. flyhighbillie’s purpose is to promote kindness, empathy and compassion in children and young people to reduce mental health issues, bullying and suicide.
flyhighbillie™ was set up after 12 year old Billie Kinder died in a tragic horse accident. Billie was known for her kindness, compassion and empathy. Billie's mum Danny, dad Dave and older sister Charlie wanted to spread Billie's incredible way of being. Billie had just been awarded an academic scholarship to high school based on her amazing writing ability. Billie’s poems, stories and empowering messages aim to build resilience and confidence in children. With a play on Billie’s initial and surname flyhighbillie launched the “b kinder initiative”.
The b kinder ™ initiative empowers and inspires children and enables them to see that they each have the capacity to make a difference in the world through kindness.
The b kinder resources aim to prevent and change the current alarming statistics on mental health issues, bullying and suicide through positive, unique, interactive and tangible kindness resources. The b kinder resources have been designed with the help of psychologists, education consultants and teachers and are initiating conversations around kindness, empathy and compassion.
