I've always said that Kindness is Contagious. The smallest act of human kindness has the power to change another human being’s life. Forever.

It could be as simple as a smile to the kid no one smiles at or holding the door for the girl who smells.

Or as big as standing up for the bullied kid or inviting the loner to sit with you at lunch.

No matter big or small, kindness has the power to save lives. Try it out. You'll feel ignited inside.

Watch K. M. Walton's TEDx Youth Day presentation on THE POWER OF HUMAN KINDNESS right HERE.

K.M. Walton gives presentations and runs Writing Workshops focused on tackling bullying with the power of human kindness.

Unfortunately, empathy doesn't come naturally for many children. Oftentimes children must be explicitly taught to think of others, to be kind and compassionate. The teachable moments must be seized. How?

Let award winning young adult author and anti-bullying expert K. M. Walton seize those moments with your students. K. M. shows audiences what compassion looks and sounds like. She shares personal and touching stories as well as highly effective anti-bullying techniques.

The ultimate goal of K. M. Walton’s presentation—THE POWER OF HUMAN KINDNESS—is to highlight the positive side of making an impact. Students will walk away with a new way of looking at each other. Instead of seeing the labels, she challenges them to see the human beings.

K.M. Walton has worked with thousands of middle and high school students and would be honored to come to YOUR school! She also presents at conferences (panel discussions, workshops, keynote speeches). Visit the GET K.M. drawer for complete information, event photos, and recommendations.
