Join Millions of People for Character Day on September 13

“The final forming of a person's character lies in their own hands.”
-Anne Frank

Wisdom. Courage. Humanity. Curiosity. Enthusiasm. Kindness. Empathy. Grit. Bravery. Fairness. Humor. Optimism. Love.

Wish you had more of these qualities in yourself and your life? Us too. In these crazy times, and all the time, we need to build ourselves up so we can keep finding the strength to actively resist tyranny, support our communities, and rebuild America.

So join our friends at Let it Ripple Film Studio and millions around the globe on September 13 for the 4th annual Character Day, a global conversation about the importance of developing and improving character. How does it work? Your Character Day event(s) can look and feel any way you would like it to be; any time of the day, anywhere, and any size. You can join as a whole company or a department, an entire school district or individual classroom, a family -- or just you. Everyone is invited, and participation is free. The Character Day team will provide your group with films, the Periodic Table of Character Strengths Poster, printed discussion materials, a robust online hub of resources, and an online conversation with leading experts on character education from multiple perspectives.

Here’s how to join the over 90,000 groups that are already signed up:

  1. Watch this 1 minute trailer about it and sign up today.
  2. Spread the word to your communities on Twitter and Facebook.
  3. Watch the acclaimed films “The Science of Character” (8mins),  “The Adaptable Mind” (11 min), "The Making of a Mensch" (10mins)  to get a better sense of what types of films will be shown on Character Day.
