Kimochis is looking for strategic partners to help us accomplish our critical mission.
Times are intense. Kids need help identifying and managing their emotions. Kimochis can help. We’re doing everything humanly possible to get them to as many schools as we can — so we can get them to as many kids as we can.
To help the kids, we’re making a new Kimochis curriculum available totally free of charge to schools across the country. We’re also partnering with non-profits, for-profits and philanthropists who want to help power our movement.
What are Kimochis? On the surface, they’re a family of cuddly critters and a big bowl of emotions. Underneath, they’re a proven system for helping kids grow and transform — by dealing skillfully with their feelings.
Kimochis is the passion project of Nina Rappaport Rowan — the executive producer of Despicable Me — and Ellen Pritchard Dodge — a pioneer in social-emotional learning. Running the business is CEO & itinerant bluesman Ned Kraft.
When young people don’t manage their emotions, bad things can happen to them. In fact, Nina had the initial inspiration for Kimochis in the aftermath of Columbine. In today’s COVID-afflicted world, kids have a lot to deal with. They need our help.
Human emotions are a powerful language. Once kids learn to speak it, they become more resilient, happier, more confident. Kimochis are simple to use. They help kids develop skills that last a lifetime.
