“Giving Grace is proud to introduce the Kindness Objective (TKO) a new nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting caring and thoughtfulness in the community.
Melissa Marquais, president and founder of The Kindness Objective said the organization began as an anti-bullying group but soon took a little bit of a turn after realizing many anti-bullying organizations focus on how they can prevent bullying after the fact. She decided her organization would address the root cause of bullying.
‘Nobody was really focusing on the forefront which is teaching empathy, compassion, and kindness, to kids and people so that they don’t become bullies in the first place,’ Marquais said. ‘The Kindness Objective is really focused on helping people learn those things through different means.’”
