Global Cardboard Challenge

In this followup film to Caine’s Arcade, the Imagination Foundation is announcing the launch of the first ever Global Cardboard Challenge, inviting the world to play while raising funds to foster creativity and entrepreneurship in kids.

The Global Cardboard Challenge is the next chapter of a global movement growing out of the short film Caine’s Arcade, which shared the inspiring story of 9-year-old Caine Monroy’s cardboard arcade with the world.

On October 6th, the one year anniversary of the flashmob of surprise customers in “Caine’s Arcade”, hundreds of Cardboard Challenge events around the world will celebrate creativity, imagination, and community.

There are over 150 event organizers in 25 countries who have already signed up. You can get involved by hosting your own event or attending one near you.

Have fun on October 6th!


The Kindness School

The latest story from the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation’s “Everyday People, Everyday Kindness” Campaign is about the Puget Sound Community School where the focus is not only on academics but on the “full range of human development”, with integrity, character and kindness at its foundation.

Andy Smallman inspires his students to practice kindness.

Students are here because they want to be here. They’re doing what they want to do because we let them do what they want to do. And interestingly enough when you put kids in that environment what they want to do is develop themselves and grow.

Andy Smallman, PSCS Founder & School Director

With such a positive, nurturing and loving educational environment no wonder the students say they “enjoy waking up and going to school”!
