The Kindness Club guide is an 8-page booklet that details how students can start a club in their school, and includes useful tips about forming and maintaining an advocacy group. The five skill builders included in the booklet have been developed by experienced activists, teachers and writers to teach students various forms of effective and peaceful activism in today’s democratic environment, such as letter-writing, petitioning, creating awareness material using print and video media, and fundraising. The fact sheets include important information about various animal rights issues in Australia, as well as research points and discussion questions designed to encourage students to think critically about the information and conduct their own investigations.
