The Winnipeg Police Association has launched its 10th annual Cool 2Be Kind campaign.

The yearly initiative helps teach students in Grades K-8 the value of being kind to others and making positive choices in school and in life.

Students and educators are encouraged to create a kindness project proposal for their school for a chance to receive $500 to see their project come to life.

“As each school kindness project is designed by students and educators to meet the specific needs of the students, it has a much greater chance of making an impact,” said Maurice Sabourin, president, WPA. “Over the past nine years, the Cool 2Be Kind campaign has funded 223 school Kindness projects totalling $111,500.”

Funding for Cool 2Be Kind school kindness projects is provided by the Winnipeg Police Association and generous corporate sponsors.
