Take Kid President’s Awesome Year Challenge

 I was researching videos for work last week and watched a bunch of the Kid President videos. I found this one from 2013 I hadn’t seen before, Kid President Awesome Year Challenge.

I know it’s the end of January, so I might be a bit late to the party for New Year’s resolutions, but I’m taking his advice and throwing a “Take the Kid President Awesome Year Challenge” party and inviting all of my readers to make 2016 awesome.

Watch the video and then decide what you’ll do to make 2016 awesome. In the video, Kid President asks, “have you watched the news lately?”, then shakes his head. It’s easy to shake our heads and despair about what’s going on in the world. Or, we could do something about it, even if it is just small things like opening the door for the person behind us, giving someone a hug, or a high five. I mean, that’s what this blog is all about. We need to make the world a happier, more humane place, one happy act at a time.

This week’s #HappyAct is take the 2016 Kid President awesome year challenge and choose three things you will do to make 2016 the most awesome year ever, for you, your family and friends, and one for a complete stranger or the world we live in. I’m going to think about mine and maybe do a bit of research first. After all, I don’t even know if you can send a corn dog in the mail, but I’ll find out.

  1. Hi Laurie,

    The SoulPancake YouTube site holds all the Kid President content, I think. In any case, SoulPancake was co-founded by Rainn Wilson (“Dwight” from “The Office). If you are interested, he was part of a really interesting interview on a different YouTube channel, “InsideQuest” where he talks about what his mission is for the SoulPankcake site, happiness vs flourishing, and a whole bunch of other neat stuff. I think you’d find it really interesting if you have time to check it out.

  2. Hey Ian, thanks for sharing! I knew Rainn Wilson was in that video but had no idea he was the founder of Soul Pancake.
