Hey, moms and dads! What is the one most important lesson you taught your child that you want him to take with him as he grows up? More than excellence in academics and aiming high in their endeavors, I always remind my two minis to be good. I tell them that more than anything, they have to be kind–towards people, animals, even to the environment.
I’m glad that a big influencer like Nickelodeon International have decided to team up with childs rights organization, Plan International, for a project that encourages young children to make a difference in their own communities. I mean, if there’s anyone who can get our kids to be the change (aside from us parents), that would be a company/brand that they are very familiar with, right? Two thumbs up to Nickelodeon for doing this!
The Together For Good campaign kicked off in August across all Nickelodeon platforms outside of the U.S. Children aged 6 to 17 years old already submitted their entries and are inspiring change! Through the dedicated platform, good.nickelodeon.tv, kids can log onto the site to read inspirational stories submitted by other kids across the globe who are actively making a difference in their own ways. Kids can also take part in challenges posted on the website as well as download tool kits that can show them how they can get involved in their own community and create an impact–big or small.
Another way to participate in this campaign is to vote for your favorite change maker among the finalists chosen by a panel of Nickelodeon International and Plan International team members. Each finalist have already been recognized for their achievements on Nickelodeon’s websites and social media channels in their respective regions. What’s left is to pick a winner, who will receive the ultimate prize: an all-expense-paid trip to the U.S. to attend a Nickelodeon event as a VIP guest. A much-deserved prize!
Nickelodeon’s Together For Good is Nickelodeon International’s new initiative to empower kids to make positive changes in the world around them. Together For Good will serve as Nickelodeon’s international platform to inspire its audiences to get involved in their communities, provide the resources and education to get the job done and celebrate the impact they’re making every day.
