Choose to Be Nice T-shirts and Movement Review on Mom Loves 2 Read

The Story:
Choose To Be Nice is a long time coming! Dina Creiger, Founder, kicked around the crazy idea of encouraging and inspiring kindness for a couple of years. An unexpected tragedy, the Boston Marathon Bombings, compelled her to finally move forward.

Since that awful day Dina hasn’t stopped thinking about how the world truly is ready for Choose To Be Nice, a dedication to inspiring and encouraging kindness. After all, even in today’s fast-paced, sometimes impersonal world, you still catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

The Choose to Be Nice Mission

seven-1

The mission of Choose To Be Nice is very simple.  We want to inspire, promote and encourage kindness whenever and wherever possible.

My Review Story:
I've worn my "Choose to Be Nice" Tshirt several times now, even once to the Zoo on vacation with my family.  I really don't have a unique or interesting story of how someone was nicer just because of my shirt, but I do think it helped me think nicer thoughts - and sort of "curb my tongue" so to speak.

My kids were wearing me out by the end of our Zoo day and were being even more annoyingly annoying to
each other (and me of course) and I kept reminding myself that "this is their day" ~ "this is their vacation, not mine" ~ and I think I was more tolerant of their antics than I might have been otherwise.  Now I can't say it was due to the shirt, but I did try to be nicer each time I wore it.

And, I love the shirt - I love the message and my children notice what it says.  My youngest asked if she can have one like mine too - so I'll have to get her one!  After all, even children should "choose to be nice"

I have thought it would make a wonderful statement if all three of my kids wore one each week to school - we have had a few instances of bullying in my son's classes (5th and 6th grades) and now my 3rd grader as well.  I love that "Choose to be nice" can be read as a positive message for anyone in almost any situation!

  8. This really would be nice for schools, perhaps an anti-bullying campaign to raise money for a charity of the same nature.

  13. I choose to be nice every day. "do you always have to be so NICE?" I'm sometimes asked. I'd rather be the 'nice' one than the 'complaining' one.

  22. I wasn't always a nice person. I had a bad childhood and when I was a young adult I was very angry. I've suffered from depression for many years. When I met my husband (we've been married 21 years ago tomorrow), he taught me to be nice. Now I try really hard to be a nice person, even if someone is really mean to me. There are too many really bad people in the world.
