Banners are available for pick-up, shipping and local delivery. ALSO $5 from every purchase is donated to the BE KIND SP33 fund which supports efforts to decrease bullying in schools and increase mental and emotional wellness services for students.

"Be Kind Poynette" Signs & Static Clings
Our ReTwist-T Teammate Anne, of Art by Design, has Be Kind packages available! Each package includes a double sided yard sign and 2 static cling stickers in Portage/Poynette school colors. ALSO our Teammate Jessica, of Country Meadow Market Candles, is collaborating with Anne to create candles specially labeled to encourage the Be Kind Movement. AND a percentage of proceeds goes directly to the Poynette Hope Squad, a student group at the middle and high school who embrace the responsibility of helping students stay connected, openly discussing mental health and what it looks like to take care of yourself, and offering to find resources for their friends who might be having a difficult time. OUR kids will be directly impacted by your kindness. Spread the word - ORDER TODAY!
