The Kind Campaign Brings its Anti-Bullying Message to Tallahassee Girls

A national anti-bullying campaign aimed at young girls has started a club in Tallahassee. The Kind Campaign hopes to spread its message of self-empowerment to the area’s young girls.


The Kind Campaign started out small, as a documentary about girl-on-girl hate, but the film eventually evolved into a non-profit organization with over 60 clubs and programs across the country. Last November, Tallahassee mother Mandy O’Callaghan heard about the campaign’s message and started the Kind Campaign club of Tallahassee, the second Kind Campaign club in the state. O'Callaghan says, “The message really spoke to me about helping girls fight girl against girl bullying because I know young girls in particular can be pretty mean to one another and I’ve experienced it, I have a young daughter who has experienced it, and I’ve seen young girls experience it, and I really wanted to do something about it.” 

Today, the club has almost 30 girls between 6 and 13. Meetings fall on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, at the SouthWood Community Center.
