“an inspirational coach…Kids will close this book energized and empowered…” —Kirkus Reviews
“…a crafty addition to collections about advocacy for the tween set.”—School Library Journal
“…overflows with ideas for budding activists and, more important, makes them think…” —Booklist

Be the change you wish to see in the world! From the popular founders of Hello!Lucky stationary, Be the Change inspires and guides you to promote positive change within your community—with information and practical advice on how to take action, 16+ DIY projects and templates, and tear-out postcards and stationery designs.

First learn how to get inspired and how to inspire others, as well as the importance of embracing diverse perspectives and how to handle conflict diplomatically. Then discover how to channel your inspiration into creative outlets, such as organizing community events or meetings, using social media to affect change, and contacting your government representatives. Also get some great tips for generating creative ideas, running for office at school or getting involved with local government, and what to bring to protests. Quotes from famous leaders and thinkers provide inspiration throughout.

Once you learn about what it takes to effectively “be the change,” promote your ideas and events with style by creating the simple step-by-step projects, including:
  • "You for President" campaign poster
  • "Word on the Street" bumper stickers
  • "Teamwork Makes the Dream Work" team t-shirt
  • "Wild Feminist" stenciled tote bag
  • "Easy as Pie!" donation jar
  • "Sweet Charity" lemonade stand
With a little creativity and a positive outlook, you too can inspire change in the world!

Your purchase helps support the WE Schools program to empower young people with the tools to change their communities—and the world.
