March is Women’s History Month: In 1959, Ruth Handler of Mattel Toys created the famous Barbie doll. Within 6 years Mattel had become a Fortune 500 company. Not only was Ruth Handler the President of Mattel Toys, she actually created and founded the company along with her husband back in 1945. It was originally based out of their garage in Southern California. Quite a successful Start-up!

(Great tech assignment for students!)
Website Embed Feature
This feature provides your Tech Team with a simple line of code that would allow you to embed your Rotating Display of Positive Messages into your school website, so that visitors can instantly see your messages.
Social Media Share Feature
This feature places Social Media Share Buttons on your entire Kindness e-Wall webpage or just on your Rotating Display only – whichever you prefer.
Yes! There are no Sign-Ups and no Log-Ins required in order to participate, as we collect no data or information of any kind. The platform is currently being used by large and small school systems throughout the country in almost all 50 states, and it has passed 100% of all school privacy regulations to date.
Yes! Many of our schools do this, because if your students take to it – then the messages can begin to overflow your school email inbox at times. Not only will a separate gmail account prevent this from happening, but you can also make it accessible to all faculty members if you choose to.
Yes! You can edit the text of any message before Approving it. In addition, if you’d like to keep a message but would like to remove an included image… or if you’d like to keep an image and remove the text, then you can do this before Approving the message. Your Rotating Display will only display exactly what you choose to make visible.
This is optional. The current default setting does not track who sent a message, as all messages are submitted anonymously. This is done intentionally, so that no student data or information is being gathered. This allows the platform to fall within ALL school privacy regulations.
However, we can add a Login Feature to your Kindness Wall that will require a user to log in in order to submit a message. This will allow you to know who is sending each message. In order to do this, however, the system must capture and store student email addresses, as these are what will identify the sender of each message. (Please check with your school privacy regulations before requesting this feature).
We can provide your Tech Team with a simple line of code that will allow them to embed your Rotating Display of Approved Messages onto your school website, so that they are visibly scrolling whenever anyone comes to your site.
The system is set to display the 100 most recently Approved messages, as older messages start falling out of the rotation in order to make room for the newer messages. However, we can increase or decrease this number to be whatever you’d like it to be.
Yes and No. Your Kindness Wall is a web app, but it is not located in an App store. However, this link shows you how you can easily turn your Kindness Wall into an app for any android or apple device: Phone Web App Instructions
