NEWYORK, September 1, 2016 /3BL Media/ – generationOn, the youth service division of Points of Light, and Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) today launched a new campaign that encourages kids and teens to create, share and act upon their own Rules of Kindness. The campaign is designed to build a culture of caring and empathy among today’s youth. 

Through October 17, teens, teachers, parents, and youth leaders can visit to sign up, submit their Rules of Kindness, and see how others are putting their Rules into action. The website features tools and resources for parents and teachers designed to help develop compassionate young changemakers who then put kindness into action through service.  The site also includes a list of service project ideas, a toolkit developed in partnership with Ashoka, and an activity created in partnership with pediatric psychologist Dr. Lynne Kenney to support youth in developing empathy. 

“We are thrilled to partner with Hasbro for this incredibly relevant and important initiative,” said Delores Morton, executive director of generationOn. “As we aim to develop more caring, compassionate and capable youth, we look for ways to make it easy for young people everywhere to get involved and put kindness into action. The Rules of Kindness campaign is a simple way to start a culture of caring!”

As a founding partner of generationOn, Hasbro recognizes the importance of developing empathy and compassion in kids and believes service helps make those skills tangible. Hasbro’s support of the Rules of Kindness campaign is part of its larger philanthropic focus on developing empathy and kindness.

“This campaign convenes an important conversation among kids and adults about how they want to treat each other, what kindness means to them, and how to turn empathy into action,” said Karen Davis, senior vice president of Global Philanthropy and Social Impact at Hasbro. “At Hasbro, we envision a world where all kids have the compassion, empathy and courage to stand up for others, and we’re very proud to sponsor the Rules of Kindness campaign with generationOn.”
