ABOUT US

We are on a mission to change the world our kids grow up in by teaching them how to be
kind and brave

Research shows teaching kids during the formative years of 3-6 kindness and bravery is the most effective way to prevent bullying before it even has a chance to start.  In addition to bullying prevention, kindness and bravery education also fosters resiliency, confidence and social-emotional competence.  Kids who are kind and brave are statistically happier, healthier physically and mentally and far more likely to grow up into happier, healthier adults.
The ideal age to begin teaching kids how to be kind and brave is 3-6 so we focus our efforts on preschoolers and kindergartners with our Fox and Trove Kindness Curriculum and School Kindness Assemblies. Find out more about our Kindness Curriculum and Assemblies here.
We know raising good people, spreading kindness and inspiring bravery takes a village so we also have a line of Kind + Brave graphic tees and prints for all ages.  Wear the message across your chest with pride and join us in the movement!
Fox and Trove is a non-profit organization.

"Resilient happiness. That's what we want for our kids. A happiness so strong it will protect their hearts when we can't, empower them to make good choices, be good people and get back up when they fall. If I can't shield her from every bump in life, then I will make sure her soul is full of resilient happiness by loving her madly and teaching her how to be kind and brave". - Jami

"When you love something with all your heart, you want to protect it; you want to make the world a better place, a kinder place. I see my children with their beautiful hearts, their genuine kindness and their pure, innocent love and I want to protect and nourish that. I want to teach them how to be brave and proud of who they are. I want to encourage them, and all children, to celebrate differences in each other and I believe that starts with teaching kindness". - Laura
