About

Randy the Reindeer is a stuffed toy with a purpose and he is on a mission to make kindness a tradition!  Each day in December, Randy the Reindeer holds a Kindness Card with a kindness challenge for the day. It is easy for all of us to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, forgetting to slow down, look around us, and notice others. With a daily kindness challenge from Randy, your family will be on the lookout for how to show kindness daily. Simply grab a Kindness Card from the stack, place it in Randy’s arms, and he is ready! The premade cards, each with an act of kindness printed on them, make it easy for parents, taking the work out and putting the fun in. From giving treats to your mail carrier- to leaving flowers on windshields- to donating things- the Kindness Cards have things that the whole family can be a part of. Kids are eager to find Randy and read their challenge for the day. With your help, or by themselves, your kids will work to complete that challenge, showing kindness in a variety of ways. You will love seeing their faces as they provide happiness to others around them, making Christmas time more about giving and spreading kindness. Selfishness and greed are pushed to the side when we focus on others and the giver and the receiver are both positively affected when kindness is shown. The priceless experiences gained and lessons that are learned carry throughout the year, offering kids and adults alike the opportunity to help others around them and create the kind of ripple effect that changes the world.

In addition to buying for your own kids, Randy the Reindeer also makes a great gift for any kids and families in your life!

Risks and challenges

Based on the feedback that we have received since starting this project, we are confident that it can succeed. However, there is always the risk that the project won't be funded. In that case, you won't be charged at all. Unfortunately, that also means that no one will receive their awesome rewards, so be sure to share this link with your family and friends and encourage them to back us.
As with any project requiring manufacturing, there is also a risk of unforeseen delay in production or shipping. Our team will try our best to solve any problems and will communicate with backers if any issues do arise. We will be working with our manufacturer to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible and that backers receive their incentives as soon as possible.
