Creating a ‘BKIND World’ at Penn State

August 25, 2017

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — From 6-8 p.m. on Aug. 29 in the HUB's Heritage Hall, "BKIND World," in partnership with Penn State Hillel, will host their first event aiming to bring together groups of students to build a community that feels good to be a part of.

At Penn State, each student abides by a code of conduct which incorporates the core values of a Nittany Lion: integrity, respect, responsibility, discovery, excellence and community. In upholding these values, Penn State Hillel’s BKIND World believes that kindness is an integral element and an exemplary means of maintaining the atmosphere that we strive to deliver on campus and throughout Happy Valley.

In an effort to create a "BKIND World" at Penn State, Penn State Hillel will be partnering with more than 20 student organizations to launch their first event on campus. Participating attendees will get to hear from BKIND Founders and Penn State Hillel’s BKIND Group, as well as learn more about the organizations participating in the "BKIND World" (Bloom, Bridges to Prosperity, Brit Shalom, Community Help Centre/Centre Helps, Council of Lion Hearts, Cystic Fibrosis Club, Dear Hero Program, DMAX Club, Empower Orphans, Enactus, Future Opportunities Reached by Mentorship Consulting (F.O.R.M.), Harmony, IFC, Kind Bars, Life Link, On My Honor, Parkinson Foundation, PSU Invitational, ServeState: Students for Philanthropy, She's the First, and Stand for State, UNICEF).

According to www.BKind.world, BKIND, founded in Israel by Eran Rozen and Dan Liebeschutz, aims to reach schools, educational groups, workplaces, and diverse communities and energize them to take on a positive, kind and caring attitude toward others around them. Through unique presentations, BKIND inspires to action and enhance their own perceptions of what we can do to affect our own reality. Participants of BKIND World receive the official BKind Card, a tool used to promote “good deed chains” that motivate and let others know how they too can take an active part in making this world a better place.
