We Can Change The World

Making a change on a global level is a change that everyone, both young and old, must work together to accomplish.

About Kindness Matters

Kindness Matters is a campaign designed to improve the way all people interact with each other. It is in honor of 13 year old Peyton A. James, who took his life after years of being bullied.

Not everyone is a bully, but everyone can be kinder to those around them. Kindness Matters is not just another “anti-bullying” campaign. Instead, it’s a PRO-KINDNESS message that shows young people the power of their words and the power of KINDNESS!

Peyton A. James

Peyton was an amazing boy. He had beautiful red hair, piercing hazel eyes that changed from green to blue, and a quirky sense of humor. Peyton is loved and missed by everyone who knew him and thousands of people that never had the chance to meet him. It is through his memory that Kindness Matters was born and it will be his legacy.
