Kid President , We All Need A Pep Talk

We love Kid President! He says some pretty amazing, touching, and powerful things. For example, “We can make everyday better for each other.” There are some terrible things going on in the world and it makes us wonder if we all just did one little nice thing for someone, then maybe our world would be a little better for everyone. How will you make today better for someone? What do you think about Kid President?

Kid President, Peanuts: Life is a Comic Strip

We just love Kid President’s latest video. He says, “Life is like a comic strip. Some people do the same boring thing everyday, but some people fill their black and white boxes with awesomeness! How do you add life to the empty sheet of paper?” Let’s start a conversation as we honor “Yesvember”…maybe some of the Edublogs challenge classes will join in.

Let’s make the world a kinder place

Check out this Kid President video on How to Change the World. It’s really inspirational and makes us feel like we want to do something to make our world a kinder, gentler, nicer place. Max came up with a great idea. We are collected canned goods for the homeless and calling January (what’s left of it) “Can-uary”. Yes, we can! What could you do to make the world a better place?

Socktober! Change the world

Kid President wants to sock it! Sock what, you say. Homelessness. According to Kid President on  SoulPancake, every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. So this October, even though we are getting a late start, we want to help SoulPancake and Kid President by participating in the Socktober sock drive. He wants 2 million people to participate to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.

Did you know that San Diego rates third in the nation for homeless people. There are approximately 10,000 homeless people right now in San Diego.

We’re going to collect socks for a couple of weeks and then donate them to a shelter. We’ll post our progress right here on our blog.

We really liked the 3 questions that can change the world that Kid President asks in this video too. We’ thought we’d post them here on our blog to see what other kids around the world think:

1. What are you not okay with?

2. What do I have?

3. What can we do about it?

Boring is easy, so be awesome!

“You were made to be awesome!” according to the one and only Kid President. We all need a little encouragement every now and then since it’s not easy being awesome all the time. And, don’t forget you need to have hopes and dreams to reach for.
It’s the start of a new school year and the perfect time for a peptalk from Kid President. Check out his video. Which road are you on? What are your hopes and dreams for this school year? Who encourages you? What will you create to make the world awesome? Let us know.
