Do you have a kind kid at your house? If so, you can help Chica and my friends at Sprout in their goal to reach 1 Million Acts of Kindness! With just 408,454 acts reported as of this writing, time is running out as the clock ticks down to the September 30th goal. Additionally, your child could be Sprout's Kindest Kid. Families are asked to provide a photo and short description at this location explaining how their child helped the family, a friend, the community, an animal, the Earth or any other positive everyday contributions.
"The child named Sprout’s Kindest Kid will win a trip to Sprout’s headquarters in Philadelphia with their family to be Sprout’s honorary Chief Kindness Officer for the day. They will tour Sprout and the Sunshine Barn, meet Chica and The Sunny Side Up Show hosts, and record segments about kindness, which will air in 2014 as well as be featured on sproutonline.com. The Kindest Kid entry period concludes at 11:59 p.m. ET on Monday, September 30. The general public will have the opportunity to vote on four finalists at Sproutonline.com. For each vote received Sprout will donate $1 up to $25,000 to a national kids charity. Additionally, Sprout will make a $5,000 donation to a national kids charity in the winner’s name."
The winner will be announced live on Sprout on Saturday, December 21 in a three hour programming special hosted by The Chica Show stars Kelly and Chica in addition to an announcement on sproutonline.com/kindness-counts. The programming special will include musical performances by Laurie Berkner, Dan Zanes and Elizabeth Mitchell as part of a ‘Kindness Countdown’ featuring kindness-themed Sprout episodes leading up to the premiere of The Chica Show episode ‘All of a Kind Chica.’
