Kids have the best chance at success when they feel listened to, empowered, and respected. Thatís why Do the Write Thing designs its arts-based after-school pro- grams Ė reaching 250 students in DCís most underserved wards Ė with the help of the youth themselves. Younger children write and produce their own books, casting themselves as the heroes and proudly presenting their creations, while middle and high school students use poetry, songwriting, music production, and more to raise their voices about issues that matter to them. The Kindness Project uses art and literature to encourage little and big acts of kindness, while Fashion Against Bullying spreads positivity through a fusion of fashion, stage production, writing, and entrepreneurship. Your support teaches kids to fight hate with creativity and compassion. Isnít that what our world needs?
