Civility starts from the heart...

American Civility Association is here to help you discover ways to live a happier and safer life through a heart education. You may be surprised at how quickly a few little tweaks to your daily routine will elevate your inner happy meter.


What Children say...

"It helped me because when I see someone get bullied hurts my feelings, but now since we have precious not prickly not alot of people get bullied." "Preshus not prickly helps me by not being bullied and helps me get new friends it makes me feel safe." - Luke


How you can support ACA...

For less than $1 a day you can be a hero to a classroom of children. $25 a month will provide a year of heart education for 25 students. If those 25 children each teach 5 others about living a kindness lifestyle through an act of kindness and those 125 do the same and so on, very soon everyone in the entire world will experience kindness and enjoy a bit of happiness.


ACA Kindness Book Drive

The 2023 Fall Into A Good Book – ACA Book Drive


🌟 LET’S IGNITE KINDNESS: A Lifeline Against Violence, Depression, and Suicide 🌟

Dear Friends,

As September dawns upon us, it’s not just the falling leaves that capture our attention; it’s the opportunity to fall into a good book and, more importantly, to fall into a world of compassion, resilience, and hope. We are excited to announce the return of our annual “FALL INTO A GOOD BOOK” Kindness Book Drive!

Partner with us at the American Civility Association (ACA) as we embark on a 30-DAY KINDNESS BOOK DRIVE from September 15th to October 14th. The “Fall Into A Good Book” Book Drive is not just about filling bookshelves; it’s about filling hearts and minds with the power of kindness. In a world battling rising violence, depression, and suicide among our children and teens, we firmly believe that kindness is the key to breaking these bonds. In fact, we witness turnarounds through our programs each year. 

September is not just any month; it’s Suicide Prevention Month, a reminder of the battles so many young souls face every day. As suicide attempts rise by a staggering 31%, the need for action has never been greater. ACA stands resolute in its commitment to nurturing mentally healthy and strong children.

Through partnerships with esteemed organizations like The Great Kindness Challenge and Wolfson’s Children’s Hospital, we are united in our mission to prevent mental health crises, particularly adolescent suicide. Our arsenal against these challenges is our ACA Kindness books, which are not just books but beacons of hope.

These books are critical tools that equip children with the mental fortitude to navigate life’s tumultuous waters. In a world where children grapple with uncertainties and transitions, our mission is clear: to end bullying and school violence through kindness and suicide prevention education.

But we cannot achieve this mission alone; we need YOU. The need is urgent, and the opportunities to make a difference are boundless. From sponsoring a set of books for a single student at just $20 to transforming an entire school, your generosity has the power to change lives.

Every dollar you contribute strengthens our resolve and broadens our impact. The ACA programs and Kindness books have already demonstrated their effectiveness, but with your support, we can reach even more young minds and make schools safer havens for all.

Your gift isn’t just a donation; it’s a lifeline, a glimmer of hope, and a promise of a brighter future. Stand with us today as we champion kindness and resilience. Together, let’s create a world where our children can thrive.
