Age appropriate peer-building activities and discussion questions will be left with the organizing host to continue the bully prevention discussion.

We are looking for kids around the country to not only take the NICEkid™ pledge, but to become Ambassadors of Nice. NICEkid™ Ambassadors will organize small service projects in their community, engaging others that have taken the NICEkid™ pledge. Ambassadors will also receive Bring Back Nice rubber bracelets to hand out. All NICEkid™ Ambassadors will receive a Bring Back Nice t-shirt.

Books & Buddies
There are many activities NICEkids™ can host, but our signature service project is Books & Buddies. Watching the news during the 2017 hurricanes that devastated Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico, Izzi was taken by the images of children being carried by adults, most empty handed. She asked her mom if they got to take their favorite stuffed animal with them. When her mom explained that most of their belongings were destroyed in the storm, Izzi began collecting books and stuffed animals in her classroom. Izzi felt very strongly that every child should have a book to be read at bedtime, and a “snuggle buddy” to sleep with.
If you choose to host a Books & Buddies drive, Bring Back Nice will help you identify a family, or group of families in need due to a local disaster in your own community. Whether a big storm like a hurricane, a fire, flood, or other major event that causes a family the loss of their home, you can help Bring Back Nice to a family in need.
