Finding Kind



Lauren Parsekian and Molly Thompson, both 24, are taking on bullies. Their weapon of choice: kindness. Parsekian and Thompson are the founders of the Kind Campaign. It’s an international movement that raises awareness of bullying among girls in schools, and encourages them to simply be nice to one another.


The two friends and Pepperdine University classmates started the campaign in 2009, after making a documentary called Finding Kind, on the effects of bullying. The pair can relate: They were both bullied in grade school. Parsekian and Thompson traveled across the U.S. and spoke to women and girls of all ages. Watch the trailer for Finding Kind, above.
