Peace Kits for Pandemic Heroes

This week marks the first anniversary of the Mindful Littles Peace Kits for Paradise service project when partnered with the Orinda Union school district to create and deliver peace kits to share with Paradise Unified students in the aftermath of the devastating Camp Fire,

 On April 9, 2019, Mindful Littles volunteers spent the day teaching students healing and mindfulness practices to help them manage their anxiety and stress. This impactful community project led to the Paradise Ridge Healing Initiative, which brings Mindful Littles curriculum to students at three elementary schools in the Paradise area. 

One year later, we find ourselves in need of meaningful and creative ways to cope with anxiety, contribute to the well-being of others and keep up our courage as we face the challenges of a global pandemic.

Join us in our Peace Kits for Pandemic Heroes project to lovingly create self-care kits in support of all the essential workers on the frontlines keeping us healthy, tending to those in need and keeping life moving as many of us stay home.
