connecting people around the world one kindness step at a time
13th November 2022 is world kindness day and flyhighbillie are so excited to be holding our second “walk for a kinder world”.
Walk for a kinder world is about walking with purpose. All you need to do is set up your fundraising page. You can decide how far you would like to walk during the month from 13th October – 13th November and ask friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you.
one small step of kindness, one giant leap for mankind
This year our walk for a kinder world is heading for the moon. 382,000kms. To quote Neil Armstrong “that's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” Then he added “For one priceless moment, all the people of this world are truly one,” he added.
We would like everyone to participate in our walk for a kinder world and spread kindness so all the people of this world are truly one.
about our kindness walk
Yes we are counting kilometres but the aim is to spread kindness while participating in a walk to the moon together. Your walk can take place anywhere you like and we would love for you to take someone with you. Contribute as many kilometres as you want and secure your sponsors. For every $20 you raise, flyhighbillie will donate a b kinder workbook, program and online kindness resources to a child in an Australian primary school. All donations over $2 are tax deductible. Please note that any sport you participate in can be used to log kilometres: One hour of any sport will be the equivalent to 3kms.
Schools walking for a kinder world
Schools are encouraged to set up a "team" registration allowing students to register and create their own profiles for fundraising as part of the team. In keeping with the grade 5 unit of work “space”, we thought a fundraising "walk to the moon", 382,000kms would be a fun addition to their subject. Every $20 raised by the school can be used by them to purchase their own b kinder workbooks. Please note that any sport that students participate in can be counted and used to log kilometres: One hour of any sport will be the equivalent to 3kms.
