Name Bubbles Supports The Positivity Project
As a company that works so closely with children and their parents, we are always seeking ways to support building up children in the local community. This is why we are thrilled to announce our yearlong partnership with The Positivity Project! For the year 2022, we aim to fund $40,000 in order for 10 schools to have access to The Positivity Project’s curriculum this school year.
WHAT IS THE POSITIVITY PROJECT?
The Positivity Project (“P2”) was founded by Mike and Jeff, two West Point graduates and veterans deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan, who created a program designed to empower youths to build positive thinking and build positive relationships. This program focuses on teaching the 24 character strengths of positive psychology. Mike and Jeff’s inspiration is Dr. Chris Peterson, one of the founders of positive psychology, who defines it as teaching, “Other people matter. Period.” The Positivity Project partners with schools and teachers to help combat negative thinking and create positive change all from the students’ classroom. The goal that the Name Bubbles Team wants to help achieve by 2022 is to reach 2,000 schools and 1 million students.
HOW THE POSITIVITY PROJECT HELPS
The Positivity Project’s main mission is to empower youth to build positive relationships that will help students become their best selves to reach their future potential. Through research, Mike and Jeff became aware that narcissism instead of empathy, caring more about achievements instead of caring for others, and feelings of loneliness are all at a steep incline (especially in the younger generations). However, when an individual is surrounded by positive relationships, their health and happiness along with their resilience in their own life grow and the negative issues plaguing the current generation will decrease.
The knowledge Mike and Jeff received from studying Chris Peterson’s research helped them create the foundation and process of the P2 Program. The Positivity Project teaches youths about character strengths like self-awareness and self-confidence and offers tools on how to understand and appreciate others the same way.
These tools and lessons The Positivity Project teaches help influence positive relationships in a student’s life and eventually leads to long-term positive impact in problem solving, a better understanding of emotions, and even professional growth and development. The goal is that through these daily lessons and focusing on building positive character strengths, the P2 Project will affect all areas of a student’s life such as their good grades, their empathy for others, and their involvement in the community.
The Positivity Project is taught to students in their classrooms during the school year and P2 partners with the teachers in every individual classroom. Rather than generically teach the same material, the goal is to trust the intuition of a classroom’s educators and have them implement the materials in a way that would best empower the students. As these teachers are already so heavily involved in the student’s daily education and understand their personal learning styles, this is a tactic that allows the P2 project to be more personal and more successful. To aid in the educators’ success, they are also given tools such as digital resources, training materials, and strategies to teach the 24 character strengths.
WHY GIVING MATTERS
Name Bubbles began by Michelle Brandriss as a way to help children and parents better organize their everyday life. Although the company has grown and expanded over the years, Name Bubbles has not grown out of the desire to help children and parents. Beyond organizing, Name Bubbles wants to make a positive impact in all areas of a children’s life. This is why we support The Positivity Project and causes like this are important to the heart of our brand. Young people are the future and we want to have a primary role in supporting them, their families, and their positive personal development. We support the youths of the next generation and we believe the key to healthy and successful youths is through fostering healthy relationships, character strengths, self-confidence, and developing positive tools for success.
