Channel Kindness, a project of the Born This Way Foundation, and Girls Write Now are excited to announce the launch of Kindness Collection, a series of stories written by mentees sharing their experiences and diverse perspectives. Follow us at @channelkindness and @girlswritenow, so you don’t miss a story!
Channel Kindness is a digital platform launched by Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation with the purpose of encouraging young people to build a kinder and braver world. Through the power of storytelling, Channel Kindness hopes to invite their audience to share kindness, encourage acceptance, elevate the stories of good that happen in our communities each and every day, and inspire intentional kind action.
From poems about intergenerational gardening to compassionate reflections on coming out, the stories in Kindness Collection show compassion in its many forms. In addition to the multi-genre writing, Kindness Collection will also include a writing prompt along with each story to inspire others to create their own empathetic work. To kick off the collection, Mentor Annie Pill and Mentee Shaila Moulee were interviewed about their Girls Write Now journey and the positive impact that their mentorship has had on their writing, life, and mental health.
