A unique idea was presented to me for getting kids to perform kind acts. Michael Bogan, co-founder of Promise Monsters sent me the following information of their upcoming launch:
Promise Monsters is a line of plush monsters, manufactured in the USA (Indianapolis), that spread sneaky acts of kindness. Every Promise Monster comes with a Monster Mission – a fun and sneaky act of kindness for kids to complete. When the kid completes his kind mission, Promise Monsters mails him a reward! Promise Monsters are sold at independent retail locations and online atPromiseMonsters.com.
Through Kickstarter – the popular crowdfunding platform – Promise Monsters aims to create a new monster, Albert, and all new kind missions. Rewards for backers of the project include the monster himself, Albert; donations of monsters to Riley Hospital for Children; picking the kind acts to be included with the monsters; and even the chance to have a backer’s drawing made into a Promise Monster.
