We are a team of moms (and an awesome youth intern) spread across five time zones who have combined our various expertise to bring this children's magazine to life. But a magazine would not be complete without a diverse and inclusive pool of talented contributors. We aim to curate content from far and wide and bring in perspectives beyond our own so that the pages in Mighty Kind reflects the diversity we value so much.

"To be 'mighty kind' means to muster whatever strength, capacity, means, or influence we have and purposefully make choices to bring love, support, hope, friendship, inclusion, or any other variation of compassion to someone else."

"There is no longer room to be simply kind and politely nice. Those things are important, but our world needs a wave of caregivers and kids who are mighty kind-- moving into a world of action."

“Kindness is a central part of raising conscious, thoughtful little humans. The act of listening, learning, and taking in new perspectives is all part of being a whole person, and Mighty Kind does a mighty fine job of bringing honest, diverse, anti-racist stories and themes to kids and parents alike.”
